Based on literature review and data from the presented case report the authors have discussed possible reasons of difficulties in therapy of a 10-year old boy with attentiondeficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) and oppositional-defiant disorder (ODD). Special attention was given to quality of attachment and its transgenerative conditionings. Standard therapy methods, such as pharmacotherapy, psychoeducation and parental skills training did not result in improvement of the child functioning. It seems to be important to include attachment therapy in the treatment of children with ADHD and ODD coexisting with emotional abuse.
