Overview

Broken Spirits~Lost Souls provides a rare, valuable look at a silent yet potentially deadly problem plaguing families today, Reactive Attachment Disorder (RAD).

Children born into crisis or ambivalence are vulnerable to attachment disturbances because the roots of this horrendous disorder occur when basic life enhancing needs of newborns and infants go unnoticed or unmet. Consequently, children who are victims of early neglect or trauma are at grave risk.

The candid stories in Broken Spirits~Lost Souls, told by parents of disturbed youngsters, paint a clear picture of their chilling, dangerous behavior. Attachment disorder may be demonstrated by out-of-control children as young as three years old. By their teens, these kids predictably defy authority and challenge every accepted familial and societal norm.

At their best, individuals with RAD represent the embryonic stages of an antisocial personality, at their worst they are full-blown psychopaths consumed by the search for another victim. RAD is not a rare phenomenon and is primarily preventable through early identification and by employing simple, sound parenting skills.

I¿ve waited in anticipation for this book for quite a while! Very comprehensive! Very informative! Very necessary! Many parents of RAD children have spent countless dollars, years of energy, and sleepless nights trying to find support and understanding for these children and the plight of their families. And now our tears will be shared and understood. The actual sharing by parents will help to educate others about the enormous stress and heartbreak these children can introduce to families. And yet, Broken Spirits-Lost Souls provides access to strategies, therapies, and most of all, hope!

the information in "Broken Spirits ~ Lost Souls" is validated. Unless we heed Ryan's warnings our families will continue to suffer dearly. In light of the recent killings at the hand of adolescent boys, we're apparently missing the mark. However, according to this well informed and easily read book we have much work to do. New and more effective ways of loving and rearing our children are now available to anyone willing to pick up a book. If you read only one book this year, this is the one!
