The Attachment Institute of New England
Rebuilding Broken Bonds
The Attachment Institute of New England provides treatment, support and education for children, adolescents, and families affected by trauma and attachment issues. We partner with parents to help children heal.

The Attachment Institute is a registered member of the Association for Treatment and Training in the Attachment of Children (ATTACh). ATTACh is an international coalition of professionals and families dedicated to helping those with attachment difficulties by sharing knowledge, talents and resources. The Attachment Institute adheres to the ethical guidelines and standards of care promoted by ATTACh.

The Attachment Institute of New England was founded in 1999 by Dr. Megan Kirby, Mr. Kenneth Frohock and Dr. Joseph Lyons as the New England Institute for Attachment and Bonding, a program of Children's Friend, Inc., in order to better serve the needs of adoptive and foster families struggling with issues of attachment and attachment disorder. In October 2002, the New England Institute for Attachment and Bonding became a separate entity from Children's Friend, Inc. to become the Attachment Institute of New England.
