Anna has a deep interest in developmental trauma, not only how it impacts on children and their life chances, but also the people who care for them. She is passionate about parent-child work. She is especially interested in parental mental health and working therapeutically with parents who carry unresolved childhood trauma into adulthood and the parenting of their children. She works also with substitute carers who may be subjected to secondary trauma as a consequence of caring for children with disordered attachments, and whose distress emerges in challenging behaviour.
Anna is also interested in group work and devising and providing attachment based trainings to different audiences using the PACE model.
