Chaddock is on the cutting edge of treatment for children who have experienced severe abuse, neglect, or other trauma in their early years of development, and is nationally-respected for the excellent results demonstrated in our Developmental Trauma and Attachment Program (DTAP). Many of the children in this program were adopted by loving families, but the unresolved issues from their early childhood prevent them from forming trusting, nurturing relationships. Chaddock works with the whole family to rebuild relationships and bring about healing for the profound pain and unresolved trauma experienced by these children.


The Knowledge Center at Chaddock allows our clinicians and staff to share our success with others through training events, webinars, consultation services and presentations at conferences throughout the United States and internationally. We have worked with individual clinicians, nonprofit, private, and government child and family serving organizations. With Chaddock’s Developmental Trauma and Attachment Program (DTAP®) model as our foundation, our team focuses on following subject areas and modalities:

  • Attachment Theory

  • Trauma Informed Care

  • Sensory Processing Research

  • Theraplay®

  • Trust Based Relational Intervention® (TBRI)

  • Dyadic Developmental Psychotherapy (DDP)

  • Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR)

Consultation Services


Our goal is to help other professionals and clinicians extend their mission reach of providing attachment based, trauma informed services to the children and families in their care. We understand the unique constraints and opportunities, faced by the professionals in this field.  Beyond just theory or book knowledge, we also have been in the trenches. We believe that consultation is a valuable tool to build capacity and drive application of the skills gained in training.  


Our experienced team is ready to support you in the delivery of innovative and informed services as well as foster individual and professional growth.
