Sample text

ICD-10 RAD presents as strongly contradictory or ambivalent responses at separation and reunion, emotional disturbance, with apparent misery, unresponsiveness or withdrawal and aggressive responses to the child’s own and to other’s distress. Social play is impeded by the child’s emotional responses. DAD is described as generally clinging behaviour and/or indiscriminately friendly behaviour associated with emotional and/or behavioural disturbance. Adult attachment styles Attachment patterns established in early development are often stable over time; the nature of childhood attachment can strongly influence adult relationships, and can be transferred to the next generation.

The child is thought about. Even when the adult is not close by the child is held in mind. We need to be able to show the child that we can feel their anxious feelings without collapsing. By appropriately containing our own anxiety, we show the child that we are not overwhelmed by their powerful and uncontained emotions. As the adult and child manage these feelings together, until the child is able to do so alone, the child gains a direct experience that these powerful feelings are not overwhelmingly destructive, and over time has the opportunity to internalize this experience to begin to contain their own feelings.

The child acquires control in the relationship with the attachment figure, who initiates this role reversal by showing helplessness in the face of the child’s distress. These children have developed a compulsive need to control those around them in an attempt to resolve the paradox of frightened or frightening attachment figure, and regulate their emotions and behaviours by controlling the source of unintegrated fears. In compensation for the chaos of their inner world, they develop a fragile overlay of coping behaviours that are either controlling and punitive, or controlling and caregiving.
