UCalgary family intervention program adopted in Brazil, Denmark

An intervention program co-created by UCalgary Nursing Professor Dr Nicole Letourneau and Research Associate Dr Martha Hart is expanding to international audiences. The ATTACH (Attachment and Child Health) program, which was developed as an intervention tool for families affected by toxic stress in Canada, will soon be adopted in Brazil and will be adapted and tested for use in Denmark. According to Letourneau, the Denmark project has received $1M CAD for its implementation. “There has long been global interest and so we are very excited about this next phase to scale ATTACH internationally,” said Letourneau.
