Abstract (Summary)

Children with reactive attachment disorder (RAD) can have mental health and behavioral challenges such as anxiety, depression, aggressive behaviors, delinquency, attention problems, and somatic complaints, and difficulty in developing and maintaining relationships with their peers. The purpose of this project was to create a social skills and relaxation skills program for children with RAD, to identify potential funding sources, and to complete a grant proposal to implement this program at FACETS located in San Diego. This pilot program will consists of 14 sessions which will focus on teaching social skills and relaxation techniques using components of The ECHO Program combined with yoga. An independent evaluator will use pre-test and post-test measures to evaluate the effectiveness of the program and to measure an increase in both social skills and relaxation skills. The actual submission and/or funding of this grant were not requirements for the successful completion of the project.
