Adoption for Troubled Children: Prevention and Repair of Adoptive Failures Through Residential Treatment
Experienced staff members from a children's residential center describe the special preparation needed to insure the successful adoption of older troubled children. Written with enormous compassion and understanding, Adoption for Troubled Children addresses the special problems encountered in the adoption of older children and demonstrates the need for synchronized efforts between and among individuals and agencies to better prepare the youngsters and families for stable and permanent adoptions. Focusing on the best interests of these troubled and troubling children, the authors provide case descriptions, historical background, and even the words of adoptable children to make a convincing appeal for more thorough and effective prevention and resolution of the problems incurred in older child adoptions.
