EPT CLINIC ARE EXCITED TO LAUNCH OUR SPECIALIST

TRAUMA, SENSORY-ATTACHMENT SERVICE

MULTI-DISCIPLINARY, SPECIALIST ASSESSMENT AND INTERVENTION FOR COMPLEX NEEDS

About this Service

 

EPT Clinic are excited to provide one of Ireland’s only multi-disciplinary, trauma, sensory – attachment, mental health services.
 
Using a developmental and family systemic framework, the EPT Clinic’s team offer comprehensive, evidence-based assessments which can be used in court and to inform intervention plans for care teams.
 
For intervention, we use a bottom up- top down intervention pathway. Bottom-up approaches focus on a child’s raw emotions and defense systems by working with clients to modulate their bodies. Meanwhile, top-down approaches look to shift the way a child thinks – whether it’s veering them away from unhelpful rumination or encouraging curiosity for their reactions.
