Abstract

The present study conducted to examine the effect of attachment based play therapy on developmental traumatic disorder (DTD)in children.  Materials and Methods: This semi-experimental study with control group, conducted in 2008, in Mashhad. Fourteen kids (3-9 years), who were diagnosed as having DTD based on Vander Kolk criteria, were selected from child psychiatry clinic in Ibn-e-Sina and dr. Sheikh hospitals. Their parents permitted to involve in this study. Patients were divided to 2 groups of intervention and control groups. Mothers of children completed Yuleâ��s scale and for evaluation of children's stress parenting stress index-short form (PSI-SF) for evaluation of parents' stress. Ten sessions of play therapy were conducted for intervention groups. Then mothers in 2 groups completed the tests again. Results: In the variables of age, sex and grade of children also in the age and education of mothers, patients in 2 groups did not have any significant differences (P>0.05). There were not any significant differences in scores of Yuleâ��s scale, PSI-SF and parental distress at base- line between 2 groups (P=0.10, P=0.34 and P=0.58 respectively). After play therapy these test in the intervention group was significantly different from the control group (P<0.001, P=0.01 and P=0.01 respectively). The differences in scores of difficult child subscale between 2 groups, before and after intervention were not significant (P=0.86, P=0.14 respectively). The differences in scores of malfunction in child-parent relation before and after treatment were significant in intervention group (P=0.01) but there were not meaningful differences in control group (P=0.52). Conclusion: Attachment based developmental play therapy reduces the stress of children and their mothers. Â
