Other than Author inscription, interior has 3 dogears, corrected; interior ow unmarked, clean, tight, square. "Broken Spirits~Lost Souls provides a rare, valuable look at a silent yet potentially deadly problem plaguing families today, Reactive Attachment Disorder (RAD). Children born into crisis or ambivalence are vulnerable to attachment disturbances because the roots of this horrendous disorder occur when basic life enhancing needs of newborns and infants go unnoticed or unmet. Consequently, children who are victims of early neglect or trauma are at grave risk....At their best, individuals with RAD represent the embryonic stages of an antisocial personality, at their worst they are full-blown psychopaths consumed by the search for another victim. RAD is not a rare phenomenon and is primarily preventable through early identification and by employing simple, sound parenting skills."--publisher. Signed by Author. Edition Unstated.. Soft Cover. Very Good/No Jacket. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. Used.
