Maybe I've seen this one too many times; maybe I'm on my last nerve but I just cannot bear seeing that all attachment based therapy is controversial. Holding & rebirthing therapies have been outlawed in many states - Colorado being one of the major exceptions because of the BIG attachment center there run by an "expert" in the field. Attachment disorder is a highly misunderstood disorder; therapy should always be based on the individual child - the history & the extent of neglect/abuse behind the diagnosis. Our attachment therapy is gentle, guiding & parent/child based while encouraging nurturing in a safe environment. It's a slow process; the reality is that any attachment with a child diagnosis'd Reactive Attachment Disorder (RAD) will be tenuous at best. I needed to get that out....it does a parent of a child with a valid diagnosis of Reactive Attachment Disorder (RAD) a disservice to make blanket statements on all attachment therapies. Thanks for listening.
