UnCategorized Reactive Attachment Disorder arises from a failure to form normal attachments to primary caregivers in early childhood. For some children it occurs when they do not receive the love and affection that every infant needs. Studies have shown that in order for the part of a child’s brain that is responsible for regulating affection to develop normally, ‘entrainment’ between the mother and infant’s brain must occur during the child’s first 18 months of life. Brain waves in mother and child very often come into harmony with the brain waves of the other; they are in sync, if you will. This is what happens when mothers respond to the needs of their children, and it lays the foundation for children to become happy and well-adjusted adults. When this brain wave entrainment does not have the opportunity to occur, or only happens for very brief or infrequent periods, proper brain development may be stunted in the child. These children often end up with Reactive Attachment Disorder (RAD), which can leave them with serious anger and behavioral issues that can last into adulthood. Children with RAD are unlikely to seek out social interaction or to form strong relationships. While RAD did not receive much attention in the past, it is now coming to the forefront of psychological study. This is, in part, because many more families are choosing to adopt children. Even children who are adopted as early as age two or three could have already developed RAD, since it is important for children to entrain within the first eighteen months of life. There are a few treatment options for RAD. One focuses on therapy and family support, which can be helpful. Over time, a relationship with a good therapist and a strong family background can help a child learn to form attachments and to become more socially adept. However, this treatment can be hit-and-miss, and it can take many years of therapy. Another type of therapy that is showing promising results with children with RAD is neurofeedback. This type of therapy actually changes the way that the brain works; this is important for RAD patients because when a child is not cared for as an infant, the way that their brain works actually changes. Neurofeedback, which is a type of biofeedback for the brain, may actually re-map the child’s brain, allowing him or her function on a more normal level. Neurofeedback therapy may enable a child with RAD to gain control over their behavior and to form positive relationships with parents, caregivers, and peers. In fact, many children who are treated with neurofeedback become calmer and less easily alarmed. They also typically become less aggressive and impulsive after just a few sessions, although it’s impossible to tell exactly how long it will take for an individual child’s condition to improve. If combined with other treatments, however, neurofeedback as a therapy for RAD may contribute to a positive therapeutic outcome in the child’s life. If you have adopted a child who is struggling with RAD, or if you are an adult whose childhood has caused social or attachment issues, you may want to consider neurofeedback as a possible add-on to psychotherapy.
