dc.description.abstractThis capstone will address the biological, psychological and spiritual dimensions of developmental trauma. Research suggests that the quality of the attachment relationship between a child and their caregiver influences and shapes the later adult's expectations of interpersonal and intrapersonal relationships (Wilkinson, 2017). This paper will outline the effects of unprocessed and unintegrated early relational trauma on an individual’s mind and body. These effects relate to "a cracked architecture of self-regulation and resilience", attachment challenges, dissociation and fragmentation of self, and somatic repercussions (Heller & Lapierre, 2012). The capstone details the various ways those impacted by developmental trauma armour themselves in order to avoid further suffering and violation. Treatment strategies including right-brain-to-right-brain attunement, tracking sensations, and therapeutic touch will be considered as means to assist clients in renegotiating developmental trauma.en_US
