    Terri's Armchair Psych Profile

    http://wweek.com/editorial/3635/14243/

    Landscape of a Disappearance
    Just my opinion, of course.

    snipped from above article:

    " “If this is true, it gives us a pretty major insight into what kind of person she is and that she is indeed capable of doing something to Kyron,” says Pat Brown, a forensic psychologist in Washington, D.C. “Clearly, anyone who takes out a hit on their husband or wife definitely jumps into the psychopathic category.”

    Martin Williams, a forensic psychologist in San Jose, Calif., also says putting a hit on someone would be a strong indicator of psychosis. "

    What kind of person is Terri Moulton Horman?

    See:

    Attachment Theory
    be sure to google responsible websites

    Attachment disorder may or may not play a part in this family's psychodynamics.

    Wondering if we have a toxic marriage (Terri/Kane) of two people who both have some degree of attachment disorder, (difficulty forming normal, healthy relationships and bonds) and neither aware how it affects their relationships.

    http://attachment.adoption.com/
    Above is just a site for laypersons to get anyone interested started.

    Just throwing it out there as something to consider on this thread topic.

    I don't put a lot of faith in "psychologists" who diagnose from afar. Especially based upon a story with no proof it actually happened.

    (referring to those interviewed by WW)

    No charges, no court determinations, just speculation.

    attachment disorder is something that I know quite a lot about.

    People with RAD are not pleasant to be around. I don't think she has RAD.

    Being adopted at about 8 months is not good as at 9 months ( generally speaking) infants develop "fear of strangers". Can't look that up right now.

    It depends on where she was the first 8 months. During those days, generally speaking they would have a girl live in a home for unwed mothers, and then a foster family would take them until adoption.

    This would normally happen at 6 weeks of age.

    8 months is unusual. It sounds perhaps that it may have been abuse or neglect.

    Or maybe mother died. Who knows.

    Wasn't she looking for her father on the adoption site? Not her mother? That struck me as unusual.

    Kimster, I could tell you what kind of person she is but I would have to go to the basement. I'm not even sure how to find it!

    If they do a Psych Analysis on Terri I feel in all fairness they need to do it on everyone concerned.
    ALL EVIL NEEDS TO SUCCEED IS FOR GOOD PEOPLE TO DO NOTHING!!!!

    That's pretty much all we've had from the start.

    My understanding is there is a continuum of attachment disorder. Many people who have it are quite charming. It's part of NPD sometimes. IMO - actually not really my OWN opinion at all. Just been reading about it, which makes me no expert. I know many good WS-ers here have likely dealt with this issue IRL, (fosters, etc.) and would have far more insight than I relative to this case. Just wanted to bring it up for discussion...

    But in his case it's not clear afaik whether it was a *true* adoption. Based on what I read about that part of the family's relationships, it seemed to me equally or more likely that he was adopted by his mother's new husband. Totally different experience than being placed for adoption at birth by bio parents imho

    Back off of Kaine's personal information please.

    Find the link to TH's adoption please. I'm sure it is out there somewhere.

    Just wanted to point out that adoption does not necessarily lead to attachment disorder, AND attachment disorder, in varying degrees, can happen with anyone - not just adoption or fostering. They say it can happen with preemies. People can have it for a long long time and don't realize it until it shows itself as adult depression/anxiety. Fascinating (albeit theoretical) stuff to chew on. IMO, but, again...only through my reading...
