ReAttach is a new, short-term systemic intervention that we use for children, young people, and adults with, for example, trauma, attachment problems, psychosomatic complaints, or developmental disorders.

W.A.R.A. is an exercise that ReAttach therapists use specifically with patients with sensory hypersensitivity, chronic pain, or chronic problems regulating emotions. And I will teach you that exercise in this free online training!

A recent pilotstudy, published in the scientific open access journal Heliyon, suggests that an effective and expeditious way to reduce negative affect.

The W.A.R.A. training with Paula in August 2020 was really enjoyable and useful. The theory was presented clearly and concisely, and Paula was very engaging in the experiential exercise.

W.A.R.A. is useful for me as a person and as a clinician because it is so quick that it gives me the choice to stay in the flow of the day rather than having to remove myself from it.

I like that W.A.R.A. does not stigmatize emotions and instead allows me to engage with my emotions with freedom from them getting unhelpfully amplified. I am looking forward to learning deeper into ReAttach.

Frequently Asked Questions

What are the results of ReAttach?

Practice-based research has shown that ReAttach reduces psychological stress and sensory overstimulation and can activate personal growth (e.g. resilience).


What are the results of W.A.R.A.?

In the published study, the effect of W.A.R.A. on negative affect (N.A.) compared to distraction in 101 patients with various psychological complaints. Distraction is used as an effective strategy for reducing bad feelings in young children. W.A.R.A. proved significantly more effective in regulating N.A. Although it is still a pilot study, this result is promising.

Is W.A.R.A. can be used remotely?

W.A.R.A. is an intervention that ReAttach therapists can use remotely (such as via video calling). Due to the outbreak of COVID-19, she conducted research into the effectiveness of W.A.R.A. remote training at N.A. and those compared to W.A.R.A, presented face to face by a ReAttach therapist.

Without wanting to anticipate the results of this second pilot, Paula Bartholomeus indicates that W.A.R.A. appears to have the potential of a first aid psychological intervention.
