Adult Attachment Disorder
NB: I’m against using “attachment disorder” or “attachment therapy” in a false way to excuse child abuse, as exposed here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Attachment_therapy
. But it’s not true that there are only two issues, Radical Attachment Disorder (RAD) vs such false “attachment disorder.”
In fact, there is a third, major issue: legitimate attachment disorder, and I believe it hurts 50% of Americans. Just because the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual (DSM) only recognizes RAD, which affects a tiny percent of us, doesn’t mean the rest of us are fine. I wasn’t RAD, but I had a bad case of legitimate attachment disorder. Since I wasn’t RAD, I got no treatment until I collapsed after age 50. That can’t be right.
“Attachment problems extending beyond RAD, are a real and appropriate concern for professionals,” concludes the 2006 Report on Attachment Therapy by the American Professional Society on the Abuse of Children (APSAC).
