Whether you are a child, adolescent, or family member wanting to learn about ARC treatment; a provider seeking further information about the ARC approach; an agency interested in the ARC implementation process; or a student looking for resources or training, we hope you will find the information you need here.
This website is designed to provide you – the family, practitioner, provider agency, and community member – with the resources you need to better understand the Attachment, Regulation, and Competency (ARC) framework, along with helpful information about traumatic stress and adversity, as well as about resilience and health. Though the site is divided into categories to support your navigation, a parent may find useful information on the provider page, and an agency may find useful information on the child and adolescent page. We welcome your feedback on ways to make this site increasingly useful.
“A growing research base suggests that ARC leads to reduction in child posttraumatic stress symptoms and general mental health symptoms, as well as increased adaptive and social skills.”
