    Is there such a thing like mother rejection disorder? For example... When your mother would leave you when you are very young and you never hear from her again...

    I tried to google some different things to find some information on it.. Like case studies.. but I did not really find anything that was proven research..

    Any help or comments?

    That could certainly create abandonment issues.

    Attachment Disorder aka Reactive Attachment Disorder might be something else you want to research? It's my understanding Attachment Disorder is a much more complex problem.

    You might want to move this thread to the General Forum. It has more traffic and I can think of a couple of members that have have experience with-attachment issues.

    Attachment disorder can occur when the primary caregiver goes away--for what ever reason. It can alos occur with a parent physical present but not psychologically available, ie., mother's with untreated schizophrenia have children with attachment disorders at a higher rate than the general population.
