Why Avoidant & Reactive Attachment Disorders Are Similar

Reactive Attachment Disorder (RAD) is a disorder characterized by impoverished emotional and relational bonds or attachments with the most important people in our lives during childhood, that is, parental figures or caregivers. Children most frequently diagnosed with RAD include children who have been in orphanages, institutions for mental health, or foster care agencies. The disorder includes an individual to develop appropriate emotional bonds with adults as a result of an early life experience of negative bonds or lack of human connection. For example, children in orphanages who are rarely held or spoken to, often develop symptoms of RAD. Reactive attachment disorder is a rare condition, but when it does occur, treatment is often complicated. It is a lifelong challenge and process of teaching the individual to trust others and increase their self-esteem.

CORONA VIRUS1050 Lincoln Way, Ste 1 - Pittsburgh PA

Trying to understand all of the chaos associated with the #coronavirus can feel very overwhelming.

I want to let ALL of my clients/patients who come to Anchored Child & Family Counseling or who see me for consultations know that I am taking the necessary steps to ensure that all of the families and individuals who come to the office are safe and healthy.

Please know that, in the event Anchored Child & Family Counseling is asked to alter its hours or close for the safety of all clients/patients, I will be offering tele-health (online, computer, or phone) services. Although I do not anticipate this happening any time soon, this is important to be prepared for.

I also want to assure you that if I receive any information regarding the corona virus that involves your insurance and/or your care I will let you know as soon as possible.

Although many of the new reports may appear to be or feel exaggerated, as you know keeping our eyes open and making smart decisions is essential.

Please let me know if you have questions!
Tamara
