Welcome to Trauma Headquarters!

Trauma Headquarters is the home of the Attachment Disorder Support Group (ADSG).  Trauma Headquarters and ADSG share the same message forum

If you have a child with a DSM IV diagnosis, then chances are your child also suffers from trauma.  If you have a child diagnosed with Reactive Attachment Disorder, then I am sure your child also suffers from trauma and/or an anxiety related disorder!  By the time a parent finds this site, many of the parents have been traumatized and are suffering from trauma as well.

Many of the children are also diagnosed with ODD, Bipolar, Asperger, autism, depression, anxiety, PTSD, and the list goes on! 

Trauma can be emotional or physical. This site primarily deals with emotional trauma.  Trauma is any stressful event that is prolonged, overwhelming, or unpredictable. 

You will find families that have adopted children, foster children, step children, and biological children.  Many of the children will have multiple diagnoses. 

I hope you enjoy your visit.

"You did not choose Me, but I chose you."
John 15:16

Did you know??

If you remain in high stress situations for a long time the body forgets what to do when out of the stress.  You must re-teach your body what to do and how to calm.  This is an involuntary function of the nervous system.
