RAD (Reactive Attachment Disorder) Support Group ONLINE

Raising a child with attachment struggles can be daunting and feels isolating at times. Please join us for friendship and support!! This online group is for families who have adopted a child with RAD, are fostering and in the process of adopting a child with RAD or have biological children who suffer from RAD. Childcare will not be available and the class is designed for the caregivers/adults.

What is RAD? Reactive attachment disorder (RAD) is a condition in which your child is unable to establish healthy attachment with you, their parent or primary caretaker. … A child with an attachment disorder feels unsafe and alone.

What is Trauma?
Individual trauma results from an event, series of events, or set of circumstances experienced by an individual as physically, emotionally harmful or life-threatening with lasting adverse effects on the individual’s functioning and mental, physical, social, emotional, or spiritual well-being. Trauma can also happen in utero. Trauma can change the brain and how individuals process situations.

Parenting children who have experienced trauma isn’t easy. It requires some understanding of how trauma effects the brain, strategies to support the child and effective discipline as well as a strong support system for the parents. You’re invited to join us the 2nd Saturday of each month from 10 am – 11 am with other families who are parenting children with trauma and Becky Marquez, LPC who is a trauma-based counselor and TBRI practitioner.
