Course Description

CE Course Description

Reactive attachment disorder (RAD) is a severe disorder of social functioning, and children with RAD are likely to have a complex presentation of symptoms.  The purpose of this intermediate continuing education course is to provide an overview of the characteristics, behaviors, comorbidities and attributes of children and to highlight key gender variations with respect to RAD symptomatology.  Additionally, the effectiveness of play therapy to treat RAD is discussed.

CE Course Objectives

1. Identify the characteristics of reactive attachment disorder and the need for detailed and accurate assessment of demographics, behaviors, cognitive abilities, and comorbidities.

2. Outline overlapping features found in RAD, ADHD and autism, and highlight key gender variations with respect to RAD symptomatology.

3. Discuss how clinical awareness of gender disparities with respect to RAD expression may facilitate the overall therapeutic process.

4. Examine current literature findings to determine the effectiveness of play therapy elements and/or play therapy itself to treat reactive attachment disorder.

5. Summarize the core themes that appear to be effective in treating RAD symptoms, and implications for clinical practice.
