Today we have a special guest on Ask Doctor Gil. Esther Prelog joins Dr. Gil to discuss Reactive Attachment Disorder or RAD. RAD is a more common than previously believed and presents some tricky aspects to treatment. There’s a lot of misinformation about RAD leading to misdiagnosis at times. While Dr. Gil works with the biochemical and neurological pieces of RAD, there is a definitely need for psychotherapy, trauma work, and emotional healing to recover. Starting treatment early is extremely important to improving outcomes.
Dr. Gil also offers online consultations for most mental/emotional health issues including RAD, ODD, OCD, anxiety, depression, schizophrenia, and others.
