The Journal of Childhood Relational Trauma publishes articles relating to all forms of childhood relational trauma that arise within a relationship to a significant caregiver, including abuse, neglect, and enmeshment, but with a particular focus on relational trauma that emerges within, or is caused by, family transformation, disharmony and dissolution.

The journal is intended to reach a global audience of professionals with an interest in the issue of childhood relational trauma including, but not limited to, psychotherapists, psychiatrists, psychologists, social workers, lawyers, judges, family evaluators, child protection professionals, and health professionals.

We publish original research-based articles on treatment modalities and methods as well as theoretical contributions relating to the aetiology, identification, and treatment of childhood relational trauma. In addition, we publish case studies that explore therapeutic treatment routes for children and families, together with other types of articles such as book reviews and conference reports.
