Seguridad is a developmental trauma intervention. Seguridad is a Spanish word, meaning security. This therapeutic intervention supports all those directly involved with a child or young person , who has experienced adverse childhood experiences, to work together as a team, in a therapeutic way, in order to support both recovery and learned security. The parent or carer decides who is best placed to be part of the team engaged in the intervention, for example : the social worker, the therapist, the youth worker, the Key Adult etc.
A detailed factfile is used describing what the child has lived to date, their relational health – both past and present, any resilience factors and their stressors and calmers. Together we will use a range of known attachment aware, trauma responsive, creative tools and strategies that support both regulation and relationship. The aim is to support the child or young person to function well at home, school and out and about in community.
