Following a brief overview of RAD, Rick Delaney, Ph.D. discusses the emotionally promiscuous and the hyper-vigilant types of this disorder. Healthy attachment and steps caretakers can take to positively parent a child with RAD are examined. Dr. Delaney encourages parents to look beyond diagnostic labels and ask why a child is behaving in a particular way. Handouts providing more in-depth information are available.

At the end of this course, you will be able to:

  • identify two caregiver qualities that lead to secure attachments
  • briefly describe the parent/caregiver-child attachment bond
  • list four stages of attachment
  • state common functions of conduct problems in maltreated foster and adopted children and youth
  • list three key components of a healthy attachment
  • describe behaviors commonly seen in children with RAD
  • list seven steps caregivers can take to positively parent a child with RAD


Thank you very much for offering the course Reactive Attachment Disorder to the public. I can honestly say it was one of the best classes I have taken since being a foster child caregiver.
