Attachment and Refugee Trauma: a case study of an Iranian man's journey toward recovery

Emma Boles

Early childhood experiences play an important role in shaping the way we perceive ourselves, others and the world around us. Attachment involves the development of enduring emotional bonds between children and caregivers that occurs during childhood, and continues to have an impact throughout adult life. Trauma experienced early in life, when compounded by refugee trauma in adulthood, can give rise to significant psychological symptoms. When working with survivors of refugee trauma, consideration of an individual’s history and attachment style can provide insight into the development of trauma reactions and clinical symptoms, as well as suggest implications for treatment and recovery.
