June 2017. Don’t miss Adoption Today magazine’s FREE June issue on Attachment & Trauma. To address the long-term effects of abuse and neglect on children, including trauma and attachment issues, Adoption Today has dedicated its entire June issue to helping foster and adoptive parents meet the needs of children who have been affected by early trauma.
“Every day we hear stories of families struggling to find support and resources for children they adopted who previously experienced abuse and neglect in their birth homes, in foster care or in orphanages,” said Kim Phagan-Hansel, editor of Adoption Today and Fostering Families Today. “We want to provide families a no-cost way to access information that will enhance their parenting techniques and locate the specialized therapists and support organizations that can help them meet the needs of their children.”
Understanding how critical information on attachment and trauma is for families, Adoption Today is giving the entire 76-page June issue away for free on its website at www.adoptinfo.net.
Check out the article by ATN Members on page 40, “How We Knew…And What We Did About It” – a roundtable discussion of parents reflecting how they recognized the attachment disorder & trauma symptoms in their own children and strategies they’ve pursued that have been helpful.
