Question description

Page 204:

"Reactive Attachment Disorder (RAD), a diagnosis frequently given to children who have suffered severe early neglect and/ or trauma... It is marked by a lack of empathy and an inability to connect with others, often accompanied by manipulative and antisocial behavior. RAD can occur when infants don’t receive enough rocking, cuddling and other nurturing physical and emotional attention. The regions of their brains that help them form relationships and decode social cues do not develop properly, and they grow up with faulty relational neurobiology, including an inability to derive pleasure from healthy human interactions."

Look up the 'Stanford v. Kentucky (1989)' juvenile death penalty case. Tell me what you can find about the suspect's childhood. Do some research. Do you think the suspect in this case had RAD? Why or why not?

Now research Charles Manson. What happened in Manson's childhood that contributed to his abnormal development. Do you think Charles Manson had RAD? Why or why not? Watch this:
