Video lesson in original language

The lecture features consecutive English-Italian translation by Vittoria Ardino, President of SISST and member of the Board of the European Society of Traumatic Stress Studies.
ARC is a multidisciplinary intervention and treatment model aimed at children and adolescents who have experienced complex trauma. The goal of this intervention - based on scientific evidence - is to support the attunement of referring adults so that they can respond to children with attitudes and behaviors that instill states of calm that are well received by children.
ARC was originally designed for children and families who have experienced repeated and complex trauma by identifying three areas of intervention that typically characterize the vulnerabilities of children who have experienced adverse experiences and that are critical to building their future resilience: Attachment, Emotional Regulation and Competence. ARC is, moreover, an intervention that adopts a trauma-informed approach and integrates aspects necessary for the proper functioning of Child and Adolescent Services, thus also of interest to policy-makers and not only to social and health professionals.
The particularity of this model is that it acts not only on the child and his/her family, but also on the system that surrounds them.
The literature and research highlight that ARC reduces post-traumatic symptoms and has a positive impact on psychosocial competencies from early childhood through adolescence.
