Reactive Attachment Disorder?


Brown, Glen - http://glennbrownministries.com/uploads/18._Ministering_to_Deeply_Troubled_Children.pdf - Chapter 18 -
"RAD is a condition in which individuals have difficulty forming loving, lasting relationships. They often have a nearly complete lack of ability to be genuinely affectionate with others. They typically fail to develop a conscience and do not learn to trust. They can be surface compliant for weeks if there is no loving relationship involved. With strangers they can be extremely charming and appear loving.  Unknowing adults misinterpret this as the child trusting or caring for them. If they cannot trust and love their own loving family, they will not trust and love others."
