Come join us for an in-depth training on Reactive Attachment Disorder. The root of the disorder can be boiled down to one word:
When an infant is born into the world, it learns to trust immediately. Completely dependent on its caregivers, the child quickly learns that they will be comforted when they cry, fed when they’re hungry, supported when they’re hurt, and held when they’re afraid.
This baby feels cared for and safe and like they are a part of something. As a result of this care, the brain makes necessary connections….connections that will make a person whole.
In cases where that nurturing does not take place, however, those connections are not made. Are never made. To overcome, requires a lot of intentional work paired with much trust when trust was never woven into the individual in the first place.
How do you utilize trust, then, when it is non-existent? And therein lies the conundrum.
This training is an excellent course for resource parents, counselors, therapists, social workers, and child care workers.
