"Like a Different Child": One Family's Commitment to Healing, One Step at a Time
Breidenstine, Angela S.
ZERO TO THREE, v37 n6 p4-9 Jul 2017
This article describes how a Tulane early childhood mental health clinic provided trauma-informed care for a young, severely maltreated child victim of human trafficking. Effective treatment included two evidence-based therapies and psychiatric care over a span of 2 years. Therapists made decisions about intervention in response to fluctuations in primary presenting symptoms and family priorities. The story of this family illustrates the value of flexibility in clinical work; the benefit of parent consultation; the need for a sensitive, nurturing relationship to facilitate healing; and the critical component of parent commitment. The family's journey serves as a powerful example of the effects of maltreatment and the possibility of recovery.
