Debra Wesselmann, MS, LIMHP, Cathy Schweitzer, MS, LIMHP and Stefanie Armstrong, MS, LIMHP are the co-founders and have developed practical strategies, in-depth discussions, attachment-encouraging exercises and case presentations that are at the core of ATCI’s training resources.
What We Do
ATCI has constructed an innovative, collaborative approach to working with severely traumatized children that includes the family and their therapeutic team called the Integrative Attachment Trauma Protocol for Children (IATP-C) model.
“This research driven integrative approach is designed to treat the whole family and put simply: it works. I have been utilizing protocol learned at the conference with many families in my practice, and they are realizing successful outcomes.”– Kathryn H., LMHC, RPT
