The Link Between Nature Connection, Trauma and Attachment

At the beginning of this year I am putting together a multi year research project on the role of trauma and how humans attach to nature for healing and ‘wholeing’ when other humans are deemed ‘unsafe’.  My studies will pull from the following bodies of research:

  • Attachment Theory
  • Bowen Family Systems Theory
  • Trauma treatments, origins and therapies
  • Anthropology and Sociology research
  • Ecopsychology and Ecotherapy
  • Clinical studies on the effects of nature connection and animal assisted therapy
  • Interviews of adult survivors of child abuse and trauma who are connected to nature as a result of their traumas

If you or anyone you know are interested in being interviewed for this research, please contact me at I will post my article once my research is complete.
