Loved, Valued, and Included: Some Implications of Neurobiological, Systems, and Psychotherapeutic Research for Social Welfare
Stafford, Brian
Journal of Loss and Trauma, v14 n4 p280-286 2009
The authors of the primary articles in this special edition provide early and promising evidence that developmentally sensitive psychotherapeutic interventions and integrated care systems improve the lives of children who have been exposed to abuse or neglect. Why, then, do so many children in the social welfare system receive care that is not fostering their potential? This response highlights other perspectives about where we stand today in regard to the care of children that enter out of home placements, highlighting some of our grand achievements and our current failures. Even as the debates about government debt and fiscal responsibility mount, what is clearly required is the transcendence of our current system to one that is developmentally sensitive, integrated, evidence-based, and sustainable.
