ABSTRACT
This article describes a group approach with a multifamiliy design as a possible comprehensive model for giving treatment and support to complexly traumatised children, targeting both the basic brain-functioning on an individual level as well as the social system surrounding the child. Brain functions that are known to be affected by severe traumatisation are described, along with a rationale for targeting these basic functions in order to achieve healing for the child. The article further discusses the need for identifying what therapeutic elements are suffi cient for obtaining a healthy development, and raises the question whether treatment needs to be carried out by specialized services.
