Someone with an anxiety disorder has a lot more than the usual amount of fears and nervousness. Someone with a depressive disorder often feels sad, irritable, hopeless, or moody. A person with an obsessive-compulsive disorder or trauma-related disorder may have thoughts or reactions that impact their thinking, feeling, and behaviour, causing major problems in their day-to-day life."},{"term":"evidence based practice","description":"Evidence based practice means applying the best available research results when making decisions."},{"term":"informed consent","description":"Informed consent means our workers will explain to you and your child:\r\n\r\nWhy the service is being proposed; \r\nThe nature of the service; \r\nWho will be providing the service; \r\nWhat are the expected benefits; \r\nWhat are the alternatives to having the service; \r\nWhat are the risks and side effects; \r\nWhat are the likely consequences of not having the service; \r\nWhat are the limits of confidentiality; \r\nbefore asking you to agree to the service."},{"term":"intellectual disability","description":"Someone with an intellectual disability has limitations in thinking and problem-solving skills (also called intellectual functioning) and day-to-day life and social skills (also called adaptive functioning).

RAD refers to a very limited set of circumstances in which children are thought to not have the opportunity to develop any specific attachment to a caregiver. Onset of the problems must begin before age five and cannot be due to another mental health or developmental problem, and the child must have reached a developmental age of at least 9 months old. Children with RAD cannot or do not seek or respond to any comfort, even when very distressed or hurt. Extremely insufficient care, such as neglect or repeated changes of primary caregivers, without meaningful contact with adults, is thought to “cause” the disorder."},{"term":"resilience","description":"An individual\\'s ability to adapt to stress and adversity"},{"term":"Trauma informed","description":"Trauma-informed care recognizes trauma symptoms in clients and the role that trauma has played in their lives."} ]
