#20210922 – WEBINAR: RAD: Doing Better with What We Have Learned (For Professionals)

However, what we have often left out is the role the body plays in this process. We have over diagnosed, misdiagnosed, and failed to diagnose attachment problems correctly.

This discussion will include misconceptions of reactive attachment and why that can hurt children and families. It will then shift to thinking about what we have learned to inform us about better decision making for children at risk.
