GOMEZ MUZZIO S, Esteban; MUNOZ, María Magdalena  and  SANTELICES, María Pía. Effectiveness of Attachment Interventions with Traumatized Childhood in Social Risk: A Challenge of Priority for Chile. Ter Psicol [online]. 2008, vol.26, n.2, pp.241-251. ISSN 0718-4808.

The paper review the problems that face traumatized children on diverse áreas of their psychosocial devel-opment, linked sometimes to an insecure attachment disorder, commonly of a disorganized kind. Essential concepts of attachment theory are described, to understand a great part of the pillars that are orienting the interventions developed on the field of infant mental health, social programs, and childhood protection sys-tems. Later, a review of the specialized literature about preventive interventions on attachment is developed, and three psychotherapy modalities are briefly reviewed based on evidence with promisingly applications on the field of traumatized children. It concludes emphasizing the importance of diffusing and incorporat-ing evidence based practices in the work with traumatized childhood, especially for the Chilean context, in which today prevention on infant mental health is a priority.

Keywords : Attachment; early intervention; traumatized childhood; infant mental health.
