Dr. Darleen Claire Wodzenski of Orchard Human Services, Inc. has developed a revolutionary Developmental Framework that serves as a Transtheoretical Model for treating disorders of Attachment Development. Her model focuses on the important developmental steps while integrating effective counseling, mental health, and psychological strategies that promote overall healing and recovery.
While total recovery time varies, many children are seeing results within the first days and weeks of treatment. Children who were reluctant to cuddle and hug parents may learn quickly how to all into the loving safe arms of their new caregivers. Moreover, Dr. Darleen Claire’s treatment model incorporates the entire family, ensuring forward moving success for all children and parents in the family unit. The therapy is gentle, comprehensive, and goes to the heart of the matter.
We asked her why her Attachment Developmental Framework seemed to be more effective than other typical treatments and she explained that Attachment Development is a developmental disorder. Typical therapies depend upon a relatively typical development of the child in order to work; but, the brain of the attachment disordered child is not typical. Instead, children with Attachment Disorder tend to lack important developmental skills that are necessary for many typical therapies to work. “The key is addressing the underlying developmental issues as the foundation to healing … then the therapies can be introduced as the child learns, grows, and heals” she explained.
As a therapist, Dr. Darleen Claire focuses on the unique characteristics, strengths, and needs of the child. By working with each child as an individual, she is able to create a developmental intervention that brings that child from point A to the desired destination – point B, where the child is healthy, happy and whole. Her therapeutic approach brings the entire family along, incorporating siblings, parents, grandparents, aunts and uncles, and close family friends. Collaboration with education, medical, human services, and social services professionals is also a unique feature of this approach.
