Co-developed by Dr. Margaret Blaustein and Kristine Kinniburgh, The ARC Framework (Attachment, Regulation and Competency) is a flexible framework proven to enhance effective trauma treatment by intervening with both the child and the caregiver system; allowing you to foster the supportive environment necessary for healthy development and lasting change.

Attend and discover what over 300 agencies and child-serving systems already know. ARC gives you a roadmap to cultivate attachment in traumatized youth, build the self-regulatory skills they need to identify and manage powerful emotions, and establish a positive sense of identity that will set the stage for a healthy and fulfilling adult life.

Registration begins at 8:00am

Early Bird Tuition - $300/person (before 11/21)

  • Explore the role of routines in the caregiving system to enhance a child’s felt safety and stability, and specify why this is important in treatment.
  • Characterize how the core attachment targets of ARC apply to the participant and/or providers within the participant’s system.
  • Articulate at least one aspect of self and identity that may be impacted in trauma-exposed youth.
  • Determine how caregiver ability to identify their own responses to trauma reactions is critical to the recovery process in children who have experienced trauma.
  • Employ techniques that enable caregivers to depersonalize trauma-driven behaviors and reframe responses to trauma reactions.
  • Characterize at least two patterns of youth dysregulation, including function of the adaptation.
  • Establish how strategies for teaching children to identify physiological responses to stress can help them understand and regulate the arousal response.
  • Employ exercises to help traumatized children identify safe resources and develop effective communication styles.
  • Support how consistent emotional responses from caregivers can help establish secure attachment.
  • Determine how self-identity can be developed through exercises that establish positive self-recognition and a future orientation.
