Supporting Birth Parents Whose Children Have Been Adopted
Provides professionals who work with birth parents insights into the support needs of this sometimes-neglected group of people in the adoption process.
This book aims to share information about the experiences of birth parents and those currently working therapeutically with them, with the hope of promoting greater understanding and improved service development.
With contributions from birth parents and professionals in the field, this book articulates the huge emotional challenges and pain faced by birth parents. Grounded in their experiences and drawing on the latest research, it outlines good practice for professionals, and puts forward a range of models for intervention, from very straightforward practical support through to therapeutic approaches and interventions.
