The Connected Child: Bring Hope and Healing to Your Adoptive Family
McGraw Hill Professional, 16 Mar 2007 - 288 halaman
"An extremely useful parenting handbook... truly outstanding ... strongly recommended."
"A tremendous resource for parents and professionals alike."
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:
"A must-read not only for adoptive parents, but for all families striving to correct and connect with their children."
"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."
"Truly an exceptional, innovative work . . . compassionate, accessible, and founded on a breadth of scientific knowledge and clinical expertise."
"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."

I bought this for a friend at the recommendation of someone who has already adopted. She said this is the book that has helped them the most out of all the books she has read. So I didn't actually read the book, it was recommended to me. Baca ulasan lengkap
