Starting Attachment disorder therapy

What is attachment disorder therapy?

Attachment disorder therapy from the therapists at Thriveworks in Ashland, VA provides help for attachment disorder, a disorder that affects one’s ability to form and maintain relationships. This disorder often develops in young children who have emotional attachments to others, most often their parents.

How does attachment disorder therapy work?

Typically, attachment disorder therapy includes both the child and their parents (or the figures that they are attached to). It helps the family understand the symptoms and effects, teaches effective intervention strategies, and even involves activities that enhance the bond at hand in a healthy way.

Is attachment disorder therapy conducted in person or online?

Adjustment disorder therapy from our Thriveworks Ashland therapists is conducted both in person and online by video. We encourage you to choose the option that works best for you.

How long does attachment disorder therapy last?

Attachment disorder therapy can last for a few weeks, months, or longer. It depends on how severe one’s attachment disorder is as well as the overall needs and goals of the client and their family.

Attachment disorder causes

Once a child is put in a circumstance that disrupts the natural bonding process, RAD and other attachment disorders can occur. While there can be several reasons this can occur, here are a few reasons:

  • A child experiences abuse (can be mental, emotional, or physical)
  • Basic needs are not met, this can be the result of parental neglect
  • Hospitalization, isolation, or separation from parents
  • Disruption in stability or frequent bouncing around (this applies to children in foster care)
  • Emotionally unavailable primary caregiver because of illness or substance abuse.
  • No comfort when child is in distress
  • No social interaction for extended periods of time. Even infants require interaction to form healthy attachments
  • Receives attention by utilizing unhealthy or extreme behaviors

Call Thriveworks Hanover—because there’s no reason to delay getting a professional’s help. With a provider’s support, your child can reclaim their life from the mental health challenges standing in your way.

Thriveworks helped me realize that I do believe people can change. I’m not the person I was three months ago, broken and fearful. I’m healthy and happy and for the first time being kind to myself. Thank you for giving me my life back.
