Building the Bonds of Adoption: From Separation and Deprivation toward Integration and Continuity
Weitzman, Carol Cohen; Avni-Singer, Ravit
Zero to Three (J), v25 n6 p14-20 Jul 2005
The number of children who are adopted from foreign orphanages is on the rise in the U.S. Children who are reared in orphanages face a host of challenges to their healthy development and to their ability to form close, satisfying attachments with their new parents. The authors describe a group intervention used by the Yale International Adoption Clinic to help parents develop successful and mutually satisfying relationships with their adoptive children. Parents are encouraged to reflect upon their children's prior experience, current behaviors, and internal mental states to develop a different understanding of their child's behavior and learn skills that will lead to healthier developmental outcomes.
