Facing Emotional Pain—a Model for Working with People with Intellectual Disabilities and Trauma

Pat Frankish, Ph.D.

This paper summarises over twenty years of work to develop a model and tool for addressing emotional development within the context of attachment relationships. The story charts the process and results, arriving at a useful approach for helping people with intellectual disability and additional emotional disability. The latter follows from trauma and results in the individuals being described as having “complex needs”. This approach works and can allow the individuals helped to live in open environments with supportive, well-trained staff.
