Abstract BACKGROUND: Reactive attachment disorder (RAD) is associated with early childhood maltreatment and has unknown population prevalence beyond infancy. AIMS: To estimate RAD prevalence in a deprived population of children. METHOD: All 1646 children aged 6-8 years old in a deprived sector of an urban UK centre were screened for RAD symptoms. Parents of high and low scorers were interviewed using semi-structured interviews probing for psychopathology and individuals likely to have RAD were offered face-to-face assessment. RESULTS: Questionnaire data were available from 92.8\% of teachers and 65.8\% of parents. Assessments were conducted with 50\% of those invited and missing data were imputed--based on the baseline data--for the rest. We calculated that there would be 23 children with definite RAD diagnoses, suggesting that the prevalence of RAD in this population was 1.40\% (95\% CI 0.94-2.10). CONCLUSIONS: In this deprived general population, RAD was not rare. This article was published in Br J Psychiatry and referenced in Journal of Child and Adolescent Behavior
