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:

Build bonds of affection and trust with your adopted child

Effectively deal with any learning or behavioral disorders

Discipline your child with love without making him or her feel threatened

Truly groundbreaking work on helping youngsters overcome behavioral problems, learning difficulties and mental illness resulting from early trauma and deprivation. The Connected Child is the first book to share Drs Purvis and Cross' highly nurturing yet disciplined techniques so that parents can use them at home with their own children. This book is absolutely essential to foster and adoptive parents, care givers, and educators. "The Connected Child" takes a multi-dimensional approach based on the latest research, covering a spectrum of strategies, including attachment exercises, behavorial retraining, nurturing touch, sensory integration and nutritional therapy, to help parents and care givers to help heal the child's invisible wounds.(Paperback, 288 pages, 2007)
