How your donation dollars work

Our fees: $500 covers 2 clincians working intensely for 2 hour sessions with families; this breaks down to $125/hr per therapist; on par with standard therapy rates. In addition, we are available at all times by phone and we continue to stay in touch and support families well after therapy has ended, this is not something all therapists offer.

Since its inception, the scholarship fund has awarded $13,275 in assistance for family therapy sessions, as well as enabling parents to attend educational therapeutic parenting conferences, seminars, and Love & Logic classes provided at the Institute.

The need continues to grow as more children are identified with attachment deficits and families seek help with healing their child.
  • It is our hope to build the scholarship fund in order to assist as many families as possible
  • With increased donations, families will be able to finish what they have started, rather than ending prematurely.
  • It is hard to know how many families do not even start therapy due to limited funds.

At the Attachment Institute of New England, we view money is a tool. When a tool is used for the right purpose, much work can be accomplished. We are very good at helping families heal; unfortunately, some families lack the financial tool they need to accomplish this project. So let us join together, you the donor supplying the tools, we at the Institute assisting with healing, and the parents working hard to complete the project, one family at a time.

Thank you for supporting families parenting traumatized children.
