Editorial Reviews

Robert Rich
Therapists’ Acclaim for Adopting a Child with Trauma...
"The subtitle of this little book is apt: it is a practical guide. If you are considering adopting, read it first. It may well put you off, but that’s better than taking in an already troubled child, only to pass the load on to someone else, causing another experience of rejection and loss for the child."
--Robert Rich, PhD. anxietyanddepression-help.com
Marian K. Volkman
"Anyone adopting a child with a history of trauma will find this in work a wealth of practical advice. Its very shortness is a virtue when parenting is already so demanding. Effective parenting, including adoptive parenting, comes out of knowledge and understanding was well as love. Theresa Fraser cuts to the chase with just what you need to know to be prepared to meet the challenges of adopting a traumatized child."
Marian K. Volkman, of Children and Traumatic Incident Reduction
