Helping Girls with Reactive Attachment Disorder

iStock_000006789939XSmallCGA can help your daughter if she suffers from Reactive Attachment Disorder (or RAD), a rare but serious condition that leaves her unable to form a healthy emotional attachment with mother (or primary caregiver). Reliable care of a baby’s physical and emotional needs enables her to learn to bond, and devoid of that (i.e.: from temporary foster care, adoption), she may have difficulty establishing any close bonds.

There are two types of RAD (sometimes also known as Reactive Attachment Disorder).  One may find her detached, unemotional, inhibited or introverted.  With the other kind she might be unbecomingly familiar or affectionate with complete strangers.

A Large Part of Our Past and Current Student Population Has Reactive Attachment Disorders

Many children who were adopted exhibit attachment disorders in their teenage years.  A stable and sustaining environment (such as what you’ll find at CGA) is necessary in order for your daughter to learn to create healthy attachments and relationships.  Our emphasis on family therapy is also critically important in her treatment of Reactive Attachment Disorder, encouraging communication between you and your daughter.  By teaching you (parenting) skills to help heal her disorder, she can avoid developing mounting social and behavioral issues later in life and, rather, go on to enjoy healthy relationships with you and with others.

THE FOLLOWING IS TO HELP US BE FOUND IN SEARCH, IT DOES NOT REFLECT OUR PROGRAM OR LICENSING:  Should you need help finding , boarding schools, best boarding schoolstherapeutic boarding schools, or Christian schools for troubled youth, please let us know.  Parents looking for therapeutic boarding schools for troubled girls and military schools for girls typically have a troubled girl.  Such therapeutic boarding schools for girls and girls homes provide help for troubled teens. Other girls-only therapeutic schools and Christian boarding schools for girls are places to send troubled youth.  The difference between an all-girl military school and a troubled teen therapeutic school has to do with discipline and methods they use. Typical Christian boarding schools are not places to send troubled youth, since they have no therapy and little discipline for troubled girls — they usually will not enroll troubled teens and are not considered troubled teen schools, unlike therapeutic boarding schools, residential treatment centers for troubled girls, and Christian boarding schools just for troubled teen girls – a school for troubled girls.
