Abstract

In the present study we examined the effect of developmental attachment-based play therapy (ADAPT) on developmental traumatic disorder (DTD). Materials and Methods: This research was a semi experimental control study which was performed in Mashhad city, north east of Iran in 2009. Fourteen patients referred to child psychiatry clinic of Ibn-e-Sina and Dr. Sheikh hospitals, who were diagnosed as having DTD based on Vander Kolk criteria by a child psychiatrist, were divided in to 2 groups of intervention and control. Mothers were asked to complete Yule scale and Parenting Stress Index-short form (PSI-SF) to determine childâ�²s and parentâ�²s stress level, respectively. Ten weekly sessions of ADAPT were conducted for intervention groups, each session lasted 1.5 hours. After last session all mothers completed questionnaires for the second time. Data was analyzed by chi square and t test.  Results: There were no significant differences in the variables of age, sex and level of education of children and age and level of education of mothers between 2 groups (P>0.05). There were significant differences in scores of Yule scale, PSI-SF and parental distress (one of PSI-SF sub scales) between 2 groups after intervention (P<0.001, P=0.01 and P=0.01 respectively). After intervention, significant differences were seen in the scores of PSI-SF, parental distress and parent-child dysfunctional interaction in the intervention group (P<0.05) which was not seen in control group (P>0.05).  Conclusion: Attachment based developmental play therapy reduces perceived stress in children and their mothers.
