Ghosts, Angels, and Sharks: One Family's Story of Healing and Growth
Murphy, Flora; Mendez, Melissa
ZERO TO THREE, v34 n6 p20-24 Jul 2014
In this article, the authors tell the story of one family's journey toward healing using the Child First home visiting and Circle of Security Parenting interventions. Parents with complex trauma histories frequently float through services for years looking for guidance to help them address their struggles. Often, these services do not offer interventions with a trauma frame or address the significance of the parental role. The authors highlight how programs can enhance their efforts with families by mindfully integrating models of treatment and parent education in ways that are sensitive to parental trauma. They also discuss important home visiting model components that elicit success.
