Understanding Children with Disrupted Attachment

When a child has a poor attachment to their parent, it leads to all kinds of problems, because they have not learned how to regulate their emotions, they have not learned self-control, they have not learned self-reliance in a positive way. So all these problems come out in every other relationship in their life.- Alexandra Cook, PhD

A secure attachment system forms the foundation for a child's development.  The often devastating impact of attachment disorder on children's sense of self affects their capacity to recover from violence and abuse in the home, and to form attachments with new caregivers if necessary.

This introductory program explains the internal effects of attachment disorder, and the behaviors that children lacking a "secure base" may display. Topics include secure attachment, disrupted attachment, neglect, violence and abuse, internal effects of attachment disorder, behavioral effects of attachment disorder, and obstacles to rebuilding attachment.

In this four-video series, the presenters describe the impact of attachment disorder on the ways that children see themselves and interact with others, and how adults can respond most effectively. They explore such topics as setting limits, avoiding power struggles, providing structure, and building a trusting relationship.  Their observations are reinforced by the accounts of foster and adoptive parents, group home staff, and former foster children.  The presenters emphasize the importance of understanding what drives children's behaviors, rather than simply reacting to them, and provide concrete suggestions for containing negative behaviors and improving adult-child interactions
