Attachment and Early Developmental Disorders

Bindung und fruehe Stoerungen der Entwicklung

by Karl Heinz Brisch

Publisher: Klett-Cotta, Stuttgart

Early developmental disorders may begin during pregnancy or in early infancy. They may have a critical effect on the development of the child, later manifesting as emotional and psychosomatic illnesses well into adulthood. Such disorders include those on the autistic spectrum, early anxiety and fear, depressive symptoms, and cognitive development difficulties with memory disorders. They are also associated with a decreased tolerance for stress, attention deficit/hyperactivity disorders (ADHD), and immune deficiency disorders. Here you will learn how early disorders develop and what preventive and psychotherapeutic modalities are available.
