Introduction to ReAttach and W.A.R.A.

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 ReAttach therapists use specifically on patients with sensory hypersensitivity, chronic pain, or chronic problems with emotion regulation. You will receive the instructions during this 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 compared with distraction in 101 patients with various psychological complaints. Distraction is used in young children as an effective strategy to reduce bad feelings. W.A.R.A. was found to be significantly more effective in regulating negative affect. Although this 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 face-to-face and also remotely (such as via video calling). A comparative study between W.A.R.A. face-to-face and W.A.R.A. remote therapy showed that both interventions reduce negative affect in approximately 90 seconds. W.A.R.A. face-to-face was more effective than W.A.R.A. remote therapy.
