Objective: The purpose of this training is to educate clinicians on how to diagnose and treat children with reactive attachment disorder. There is a secondary goal of providing parent and school coaching strategies as these members of the child’s life often feel “at a loss”. Clinicians should expect to walk away with a newfound understanding and sense of hope for this diagnosis.
Method: The DSM V provides us with diagnostic criteria for RAD which we will break down and full understand during this training. RAD treatment will require a shift in thinking from child-focused therapy to directive treatment which can be difficult at times. Children with attachment disorder need firm boundaries which will be a focus of this training.
Means: This course will employ the use of training videos, lecture and hands on training. Please make note that the some of the material may be difficult for some trainees such as topic can be distressing. We encourage all trainees to take measures into their own hands for purposes of self-care and wellbeing.
