Reactive attachment disorder (RAD) falls under “trauma and stressor related disorders.” This is important to note because it is due to a trauma or early life stressor that this disorder comes about. There are many diagnostic criteria, but you must first note that this occurs between the ages of 9 months and 5 years. So this is something diagnosed at a very young age and has to do with attaching to our primary care giver. This usually occurs because the child was either passed around a lot from home to home (think of foster children and how often they can be moved). Also, if children did not have an attentive parent or if they parent was neglectful of them and their needs. Due to these and many other issues, a child is not able to attach and will act withdrawn, rarely seeking comfort when distressed and will not respond to any comfort that they receive. They will also show minimal emotional responsiveness to others and can even lash out even when things are not threatening or clearly upsetting to them.
Overall children who struggle with this will not be expressive emotionally or seek any comfort if they are upset. I know this can sound like a really intense situation but with therapy and proper support (at home and school) it can be overcome. It just takes time to heal from the trauma and rebuild a trusting relationship. I hope you found this helpful! xoxA BIG THANK YOU to my Patreon Patrons!
