New Website Fighting Attachment Therapy
Advocates for Children in Therapy is happy to announce a new website dealing with pseudoscience known as Attachment Therapy and the many abuses it inflicts on adopted and foster children.
The URL is www.ChildrenInTherapy.org.
The site contains much information about the nature and extent of AT brutality. Look for our section, “What is AT?” for essays and summaries on these topics:
- Attachment Therapy: Child Abuse by Another Name
- Abusive Techniques
- AT versus Conventional Therapies
- Valid Evidence for AT?
- AT Parenting Techniques
- Government Subsidies for AT
Other pages provide: a history of criticism of AT; a sampling of the opinions of 70 organizations and individuals opposing AT, coercive restraints in therapy, or both; and an archive of recent AT News.
We hope soon to put up a NewsRoom page (covering publicity about AT), reports on specific proponents and providers of AT, and surveys of regulatory and legislative activity touching on AT.
We urge you to use our site for comprehensive information regarding all aspects of Attachment Therapy. We hope you will also use it to let others know about the horrors of AT.
We welcome your comments, too. If you can think of anything you’d like to see on the website, please let us know. If you have something of your own you would like to contribute to the site, we would love to hear about it!
Caution: links may have aged since this AT News was first emailed.
