The Attachment, Self-Regulation, and Competency (ARC) framework (Kinniburgh & Blaustein, 2005; Blaustein & Kinniburgh, 2010) is a core-components treatment model developed to provide a guiding framework for thoughtful clinical intervention with youth who have experienced complex trauma and their caregiving systems. Drawing from the fields of trauma, attachment, child development, and resilience, the framework recognizes the importance of working with the child-in-context, of acknowledging the role of historical experiences and adaptive responses in current presentation, and of intervening with the surrounding environment – whether primary caregivers or treatment system – to support and facilitate the child’s healthy growth and development. Rather than identify step-by-step intervention strategies, the framework identifies 10 key “building blocks”, or intervention targets, key skills/goals within each domain, developmental and cultural considerations, and potential applications across settings.
