The art & science of transplanting children

Gordon Neufeld Ph.D.
Eight 1-hour sessions

  • We are most pleased to announce the release of this videocourse. From early reviews, the response is enthusiastic. One counselor in the adoption field who previewed this course proclaimed �It was a wonderful course and the material was laid out the best of any of the courses to date�. Over the years, Dr. Neufeld has done a lot of work in the adoption and foster communities and his hope is that with this course, he can make a significant contribution to this challenging arena.

    This course is primarily presented to parents and supporting professionals in the foster and adoptive communities but the content also applies to step parenting as well. This course is also suitable for the support cast of surrogate parents: teachers, grandparents, uncles and aunts.

    The following is from the description on the back of the DVD cover:

    The impact of attachment disruption, even when in the best interests of the child, can be deep and profound, interfering with even the most loving and skilled attempts to raise the child by foster parents, adoptive parents or step parents. When such children fail to adequately re-attach to the parent or parents who are raising them, or who are unable to recover from the impact of the attachment disruption, nothing works as it should.

    Our practices with such children need to be founded on a solid knowledge base of their attachment needs and of the effects that attachment disruption can have on subsequent development and receptivity to care. Transplanting children - whether the result of remarriage, adoption, parental loss, removal, or change in custody - constitutes the most difficult challenge in raising children. Like plants, it is all about their attachment roots; unlike plants, it is a great deal more complicated.
