"An extremely useful parenting handbook... truly outstanding ... strongly recommended." --Library Journal (starred review) "A tremendous resource for parents and professionals alike." --Thomas Atwood, president and CEO, National Council for Adoption The adoption of a child is always a joyous moment in the life of a family. Some adoptions, though, present unique challenges. Welcoming these children into your family--and addressing their special needs--requires care, consideration, and compassion. Written by two research psychologists specializing in adoption and attachment, The Connected Child will help you: Build bonds of affection and trust with your adopted child Effectively deal with any learning or behavioral disorders Discipline your child with love without making him or her feel threatened "A must-read not only for adoptive parents, but for all families striving to correct and connect with their children." --Carol S. Kranowitz, author of The Out-of-Sync Child "Drs. Purvis and Cross have thrown a life preserver not only to those just entering uncharted waters, but also to those struggling to stay afloat." --Kathleen E. Morris, editor of S. I. Focus magazine "Truly an exceptional, innovative work . . . compassionate, accessible, and founded on a breadth of scientific knowledge and clinical expertise." --Susan Livingston Smith, program director, Evan B. Donaldson Adoption Institute "The Connected Child is the literary equivalent of an airline oxygen mask and instructions: place the mask over your own face first, then over the nose of your child. This book first assists the parent, saying, in effect, 'Calm down, you're not the first mom or dad in the world to face this hurdle, breathe deeply, then follow these simple steps.' The sense of not facing these issues alone--the relief that your child's behavior is not off the charts--is hugely comforting. Other children have behaved this way; other parents have responded thusly; welcome to the community of therapeutic and joyful adoptive families." --Melissa Fay Greene, author of There is No Me Without You: One Woman's Odyssey to Rescue Africa's Children

"This is a landmark book that should be read around the world. For far too long adoption and kinship families have not received the attention that they so sorely need...The material in this book is well researched, sensitively delivered, and essential for any clinician for adoption and kinship families."—Cheryl Tatano Beck, DNSc, CNM, FAAN,Professor, School of Nursing, University of Connecticut–Storrs, From the Foreword Provides foundational knowledge on how to provide current, evidence-based, clinical best practices for the specific needs of adoption and kinship families. To be a family, and what that means in society, is undergoing dramatic changes that reflect fluidity in the definition of spouse, children, and kin. Pediatric, family, adult-gerontology, psychiatric-mental health, and other advance practice nurses increasingly serve as frontline primary care providers for the growing number of adoption and kinship families. The creation and preservation of these nontraditional families are often replete with social, cultural, and legal issues that the advanced practice nurse must recognize to provide optimal care. This groundbreaking clinical guide breaks down the adoption and kinship triads into their distinct parts—the birth parents, adoptive or kinship parents, and the child—and analyzes the relationships among them and how the nurse can assist their development. Beginning with an overview of adoption and kinship parenting, this book also discusses the specific psychosocial and health care–related needs of adoption and kinship families using detailed case studies to illustrate a variety of conditions and circumstances, along with guidance on how nurses should intervene. A clinically focused section within the case study chapters covers assessment, interventions, referrals, and follow-up considerations. Learning objectives at the beginning of each chapter relay major discussion points and sidebars embedded in each chapter provide related resources for additional information on the health care considerations of adoption and kinship families. Key Features: Addresses nursing’s specific role in the holistic assessment and care of the different members of adoption and kinship families Authored by a renowned nurse leader in adoption and kinship care Provides chapter objectives, highlights, and questions for reflection Promotes current, evidence-based best practices Includes a glossary of adoption-friendly language Discusses nursing practice within the context of a larger health care team

Adoption is a big step which can change the whole dynamics of the family. It is crucial that parents understand the impact it has when new sibling relationships are forged and an adoptee becomes a part of the family. Welcoming a New Brother or Sister through Adoption is a comprehensive yet accessible guide that describes the adoption process and the impact of adoption on every member of the family, including the adopted child. It prepares families to have realistic expectations and equips them with knowledge to deal with a host of situations that may arise, addressing difficult questions head-on: 'Did we make the right choice by adopting?', 'How is this affecting our 'typical' children?', 'Will our adopted son or daughter heal?' are explored and solutions discussed in detail. All this is accompanied with real life stories and direct quotes from children, which make it a realistic and insightful resource. This book is vital reading for adoptive families and professionals who work with them including social workers, counselors and psychologists.

Illustrates the hidden challenges embedded within the evangelical adoption movement. For over a decade, prominent leaders and organizations among American Evangelicals have spent a substantial amount of time and money in an effort to address what they believe to be the “Orphan Crisis” of the United States. Yet, despite an expansive commitment of resources, there is no reliable evidence that these efforts have been successful. Adoptions are declining across the board, and both foster parenting and foster-adoptions remain steady. Why have evangelical mobilization efforts been so ineffective? To answer this question, Samuel L. Perry draws on interviews with over 220 movement leaders and grassroots families, as well as national data on adoption and fostering, to show that the problem goes beyond orphan care. Perry argues that evangelical social engagement is fundamentally self-limiting and difficult to sustain because their subcultural commitments lock them into an approach that does not work on a practical level. Growing God’s Family ultimately reveals this peculiar irony within American evangelicalism by exposing how certain aspects of the evangelical subculture may stimulate activism to address social problems, even while these same subcultural characteristics undermine their own strategic effectiveness. It provides the most recent analysis of dominant elements within the evangelical subculture and how that subculture shapes the engagement strategies of evangelicals as a group.

While there have been great strides made in the treatment options available to trauma victims, there is a noticeable gap in the availability of medical, social, and psychological options in rural communities. As these hurdles gain more recognition, especially in regards to traumatized children, research efforts have been intensified in an effort to increase the overall awareness of and find solutions to the improper treatment being provided. Identifying, Treating, and Preventing Childhood Trauma in Rural Communities depicts the issues and challenges rural areas face when treating victims of trauma, especially children and adolescents. Featuring information on language and cultural barriers, as well as the lack of resources available within these rustic environments, this publication serves as a critical reference for researchers, clinicians, educators, social workers, and medical providers.

Die aufrüttelnde und bewegende Geschichte einer Frau, die Afrikas Waisenkindern eine Zukunft gibt. Allein 12 Millionen Kinder von AIDS-Opfern leben elternlos südlich der Sahara. Die Äthiopierin Haregewoin Teferra bietet Hunderten von ihnen Zuflucht und Hoffnung in der Ausweglosigkeit. Melissa Fay Greene hat ihre Lebensgeschichte aufgeschrieben, die eindringlich beweist, dass man als Einzelner unermesslich viel bewirken kann. Haregewoin Teferra ist zur Stimme einer afrikanischen Katastrophe geworden, die von der Welt weitgehend ignoriert wird: Waisenkinder, die ihre Angehörigen durch AIDS verloren haben – die Ausgestoßenen der Gesellschaft Afrikas, von denen es nach Schätzungen der UN in drei Jahren allein südlich der Sahara bereits 50 Millionen geben wird. Nach dem Verlust ihres Mannes und ihrer Tochter wurde Haregewoin gebeten, sich um ein 15-jähriges Waisenmädchen zu kümmern. Aus dem Zufluchtsort für ein einzelnes Kind wurde schnell ein Waisenhaus, das den Strom der Neuankömmlinge kaum mehr fassen konnte. Mit Hilfe einer Adoptionsagentur gelang es Haregewoin, viele ihrer Schutzbefohlenen nach Europa oder in die USA zu vermitteln und ihnen eine Zukunft zu verschaffen. Aber Adoption, sagt Melissa Fay Greene, die den Lebensweg der mutigen Äthiopierin mit dem großen Herzen aufgeschrieben und selbst zwei äthiopische Kinder adoptiert hat, ist nicht die Lösung der Probleme Afrikas. Die westliche Welt muss die Mittel und die Medizin bereitstellen, damit eine ganze Generation überleben kann.
