Girls With Reactive Attachment Disorder

Here’s How Reactive Attachment Disorder Looks

Reactive Attachment DisorderThere are two types of Reactive Attachment Disorder (or RAD).  One may find your daughter aloof, isolated, unemotional, or withdrawn.  With the other kind she might act improperly or be inappropriately affectionate with complete strangers.

Reactive Attachment Disorder (also known as Radical Attachment Disorder) is a rare but serious condition in which a child has been unable to form a healthy emotional attachment with mother (or primary caregiver).  A baby learns to bond when her physical and emotional needs are reliably addressed.  Lacking that consistent care (possibly due to adoption or temporary foster care situations), she may struggle to establish any close bonds.

We can help your girl if she struggles with RAD, by providing her with the nurturing and secure environment of Minnesota Girls Academy that will enable her to learn to create healthy connections.

Family therapy may be a critical part of her treatment plan, encouraging your deeper communication with her.  By teaching you (parenting) skills that can help heal her Disorder, she can avoid developing deeper social and behavioral issues later in life, and rather go on to enjoy healthy relationships with you and with others.
