About this Class

Attachment Disorder is a term that most foster and adoptive parents regularly hear. Do you really understand what this really means when a professional determines your child has this diagnosis? What is the difference between Reactive Attachment Disorde (RAD) and Attachment Disorder? This class will help the parent understand how attachment is formed, what happen when early attachment is not successful, and how the parent can assist the child in healing attachment issues through relationship.

In this training, you will:  

  • The learner will understand the difference between the diagnoses of RAD and Attachment Disorder.
  • The learner will understand how early attachment is formed.
  • The learner will understand how unsuccessful early attachments affect relationships as the child matures.
  • The learner will acquire parenting skills required to assist the child in healing attachment issues.
