Reactive attachment disorder treatment will vary from case to case, depending on the circumstances surrounding a specific situation. Treating reactive attachment disorder may involve therapy.
There are many controversial forms of treatment that are used to treat reactive attachment disorder. Some of these techniques include firmly restraining or holding the child, refusing or forcing food and water, or tickling the child and pulling on the child’s limbs in order to arouse anger in the child.
Most therapists and medical professionals strongly advise against these techniques as a means of treating attachment disorders, as these techniques may be both physically and psychologically harmful to the child. It is very important that if a child is suffering from reactive attachment disorder, that they are provided with access to legitimate and safe treatment for the disorder.
