RAD refers to a very limited set of circumstances in which children are thought to not have the opportunity to develop any specific attachment to a caregiver. Onset of the problems must begin before age five and cannot be due to another mental health or developmental problem, and the child must have reached a developmental age of at least 9 months old. Children with RAD cannot or do not seek or respond to any comfort, even when very distressed or hurt. Extremely insufficient care, such as neglect or repeated changes of primary caregivers, without meaningful contact with adults, is thought to “cause” the disorder."},{"term":"resilience","description":"An individual\\'s ability to adapt to stress and adversity"},{"term":"Trauma informed","description":"Trauma-informed care recognizes trauma symptoms in clients and the role that trauma has played in their lives."} ]
