Attachment therapy is an unfounded, untested, and unregulated therapy mainly aimed at adopted children. They are being subjected to a form of "therapy" that several state licensing boards have deemed grossly negligent.
Some states have had cases in criminal and civil courts against the practitioners. Therapists have been fined, sanctioned, and even sent to prison for their treatment of children.
"Attachment therapy" (AT), as the practitioners call their trade, has a frightening history, a devastating present, and, if legislatures and mental health licensing boards don't get more involved, a deadly future.
In this section we discuss the practice of AT, its effects, its victims and its practitioners. We also collect information about the various practitioners so people can educate themselves about these abusive practices.
