Reactive Attachment Disorder

Reactive attachment disorder (RAD) appears to be another kind of brain wave dysregulation that responds well to neurofeedback and psychotherapy. Sometimes called developmental trauma disorder (DTD), the effects result from chronic child abuse and neglect. Other causes of RAD include war trauma and natural disasters. In children with RAD, attachment problems are at the core – which profoundly disrupts the rhythms of the mind and body. Neurofeedback and psychotherapy have been shown to be extremely effective in restoring calm and a more normal balance in emotional and behavioral self-regulation and attachments.

Neurofeedback therapy

Neurofeedback is effective in calming the fear-driven brain. A careful diagnostic intake and assessment along with a quantitative electroencephalogram are useful in setting up a treatment plan. 

By using a combination of psychotherapy and neurotherapy, the brain slowly learns to self-regulate and behaviors become more normalized.
