The repair of Early Trauma: a bottom up approach

Told to us through the voices of children, this unique animation teaches us that by putting together the seven-piece jigsaw puzzle of 'Developmental Trauma', we can understand how a child’s adverse childhood experiences have shaped their emotional world and outward behaviour.

The Window of Tolerance

Here is an animation on the Window of Tolerance. Find out how a traumatised child swings from fight/flight to freeze/collapse; and what adults can do to help bring the child back into their window of tolerance so they can be at their personal best.


Building Attachments

Attached is a leaflet from NHS Mersey Care on supporting parents to build loving bonds and secure
attachment relationships with their babies in Sefton.
