Bindung und Migration

This theoretical context has guided the frame and structure of GABI, keeping in mind crucial aspects of trauma-informed care for these vulnerable families. 

GABI groups are held twice a day, three times per week and are two hours long, creating a relatively flexible therapeutic frame which allows for more intensive treatment and support when needed. The structure of the GABI groups include a parent-child, parent group and uniquely a child-therapy component. These provide the opportunity for intervention at multiple levels, treating the parent-child relationship, as well as creating group spaces where the parent’s mental health and the child’s social-emotional development can be addressed. The group context not only make GABI cost effective but also provides is a powerful intervention milieu in and of itself, to combat the serious social isolation faced by these families.
