Therapist for Child with Reactive Attachment Disorder
Support group nearby for parents of Attachment Disordered children?
Does anyone know of a support group nearby for parents of Attachment
Disordered children? This disorder is most found in adopted kids, but
can also occur in children who have had major disruptions in (or
neglect/abuse from) their caregivers in their first years of life. My
adopted teen has been recently diagnosed and we want to share respite
and information with similar families.
Regarding attachment disordered adopted kids, I suggest you contact FAIR
(Families Adopting in Response) 650-856-3513. They are an old time
organization with an excellent newsletter and they run this type of
support group. I believe that they have a group in the East Bay or SF.
There is also a local therapist who specializes in adoption: Susan
Love. -- Peggy
