A reprint from 2002, this volume by Gray, a clinical social worker specializing in attachment, grief, and trauma and former therapeutic foster parent, helps prospective and current adoptive parents understand, care for, and promote healthy attachment in their adopted child who has challenges in attachment due to neglect, grief, abuse, or prenatal exposure to substance. She explains what attachment is, how grief and trauma can affect children's emotional development, and how to improve attachment, respect, cooperation, and trust. She discusses the impacts of cultural change, attention-deficit disorder, fetal alcohol syndrome, and profound neglect, and techniques for helping these children, including expected patterns of progress and how to calm anxiety and reduce control, talk to siblings, build emotional intelligence, form a team of support, and get professional help. A companion book, Nurturing Adoptions: Creating Resilience after Trauma and Neglect, details home and therapy processes for use by professionals.
