Developmental Trauma Resources 

My healing journey involved several different areas: Early Childhood Developmental Trauma, Insecure Attachment, Dissociative Disorders, and therapy (including EMDR). Extensive research is available in all of these areas, but the following links will take you to further explanation of my story and recommended resources. 

“What happens to young children will significantly affect them for a lifetime.”                              ~ Janyne

 "Secure attachment with a mother or other significant caregiver is, in my mind, the single greatest precursor to adult mental health."

                                           ~ Janyne

"I lived because I was dissociative—not in spite of it."                                               ~Janyne

 "After two years of intensive therapy I finally make sense to myself!"    ~Janyne
