We are excited to provide our readers with the latest information regarding how to promote healthy emotional, social, and cognitive growth in children with a history of trauma, neglect, and/or abuse. We would love for you to join us as we provide quarterly updates regarding the latest research and interventions that are being used with traumatized children.

What is
The Center for Attachment
Resources and Education (C.A.R.E.) became a reality as a result of the need for
providing resources and educating professionals and foster/adoptive parents who
are caring for children who have been abused. As part of its mission, C.A.R.E.’s
clinical director, Dr. Alberto J. Texidor, has been providing advanced courses
to parents and professionals on an array of topics related to the impact of
abuse and neglect on the child’s neurocognitive development and relational
skills. Some of the topics that Dr. Texidor has developed for upcoming seminars
*How to develop a secure
environment where abused children can grow and develop.
*Early childhood trauma and the
impact on the child’s brain development.
*Why do children with a history
of abuse need a full neuropsychological assessment?
*Neurodevelopmental milestones as
they pertain to attachment of the newborn.

C.A.R.E. also provides
parents and professionals with specialized training, school consultations, and
family interventions that address the needs of traumatized and/or attachment
disordered children. Most recently, C.A.R.E. has been doing research on the need
for housing and further training of our young adult population, who are being
released into an adult environment without the necessary skills and tools to
become successful. In upcoming newsletters we will be providing information
regarding this new mission.
