Who is Nancy Thomas?

Nancy ThomasNancy Thomas is the author of what we lovingly refer to as “The Reactive Attachment Disorder Bible” , or what she called When Love Is Not Enough. This book has helped us with our RAD kids more than any other resource we’ve tried. Nancy is definitely the RAD guru, in our opinion.

Nancy is the mother of three birth children, two adopted children, and one child being raised s legal guardians. She has been a Therapeutic Parenting Specialist since 1985. She has worked extensively since that time with children with all of the following ailments: borderline psychotic, ritualistically abused, abusive to animals, mood disordered, Reactive Attachment Disorder, Asperger’s, ADD, ADHD, Tourette Syndrome, Bipolar disorder, and some with histories of homicide and arson.

Nancy and her family live in Colorado in a home centered around healing the hearts of children. Nancy and her husband Jerry have shared their life and home for over 30 years with children with attachment problems. In fact, ninety percent of the kids placed in her home have killed! She has an 85% success rate with rehabilitating these kids. She specializes in bonding and conscience development.

Her accolades go on and on, and you can read about her in more detail here.

One of the most important things she has done is establish a summer camp program for unattached kids. At these camps they are able to learn with their parents in a healing environment. She holds these camps at her place in Colorado, as well as in many locations throughout the United States. Though we have yet to attend one of these camps, we know several families who have and they say it has done wonders for their families!

One of the other things that she’s recently developed are “intensive weeks” where a family can go meet with her to work on reactive attachment disorder issues in a one-on-one setting, thereby accomplishing in one week what might take you months or years to accomplish on your own at home. The people we know that have been through this program have been amazed at the change in their children.

Nancy Thomas is an amazing, caring, and knowledgeable woman dedicated to helping children heal so they can live productive lives. You can get more information on all the services and products she has to offer on her website, www.attachment.org. This is where we have obtained some of the details for this article.
