Why a RAD Intensive Part 2 [Tip 005]

In this episode we talk about  tips on when an intensive is needed:

1) When traditional therapy is not working – in fact your child is getting worse.

2) When everyone including the child’s therapist is doubting you as a parent and the child is taking over your life.

3)  You begin to be isolated from your friends, family and maybe even your spouse.

4)  When you feel you can not take your eyes off your child, you do not trust your child by themselves with others.

With an intensive you feel begin to be put back in charge of your life and child !  All and individually a great reason to travel and come in for an intensive.

What is a RAD Intensive [Tip 004]

Tip on what an intensive is:
An intensive is an opportunity to address the developmental, complex trauma that
is hidden in the body, the cellular memory and in the Sense of Self.

An intensive provides a model of intervention needed to handle the emotionally,
verbally and physically destructive behaviors that children with RAD may display.
These children respond with terror and rage when held accountable to their
behaviors based on their learned ‘survival Skills.

Children with complex developmental attachment disruptions are best served by
an intensive treatment plan in which they are immersed in daily therapy with both
a trained therapist and their parents for one to several weeks, followed by weekly
or biweekly on-going sessions.
Traditional therapy is not conducive to the intensity, frequency, and immediacy
required to reorganize the neurological developmental trauma and be able to
address this trauma while addressing the bond needed between a parent and
child for healthy relationship development.
