Traditional therapy is based on a totally different paradigm – developing relationships, empowering client –
AD therapy is about client trusting others, especially their parents,
giving up control,and finding they still survive.

Very briefly, Reactive attachment disorder (RAD) is a condition found in children who may have received grossly negligent care and do not form a healthy emotional attachment with their primary caregivers -- usually their mothers -- before age 5.
