Reactive Attachment Disorder/RAD

May 10 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm


Robert is an adoptive parent of two special needs children (now adults). Dr. Walker has almost forty years of experience training and supporting parents and professionals in the areas of adoption, foster care, and attachment related trauma. He holds a Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology, and a Master’s Degree in Mental Health Counseling. His Ph.D. work focused on communication, attachment, and emotion in biological and non-biological family systems. His dissertation research examined the effects of dysregulated children on their biological and non-biological families and their family environments.

Join us for this special Children’s Mental Health Acceptance event, where Dr. Walker will discuss the implications of making a home for an Attachment Disordered child. He will discuss the effects of such a placement on the environment of the family and the implications of RAD on the parenting methods that must be employed in an effort to help the child overcome the effects of their early life trauma. Dr. Walker believes that by increasing your understanding of the true nature of the deficits caused by early life trauma, parents can more easily address those needs and by doing so, fairly rapidly improve the climate within their families.
