The Essential Link

Attachment Information for Adoptive Parents

By Susan M.Ward

Order Book from Amazon

Review by Allison Martin

Essential Link is a helpful booklet providing an overview of attachment for adoptive parents. Using quotes from expert authors and her own experiences, Susan Ward introduces complex attachment topics in a simplified, supportive manner. Starting with an definition of attachment, she addresses its potential interruption and long term consequences; ways to encourage attachment with babies, toddlers and older children; signs when help is needed for attachment issues and RAD; and coping with RAD issues. Throughout the booklet, she emphasizes the importance of nurturing activities, rules and boundaries, and keeping parent's emotions in check. A short checklist of positive attachment activities and resources is included. The booklet ends with the honest and uplifting personal story of a parent whose child's tantrums were resolved through therapy and new forms of parenting.

A good introduction to adoption attachment, this booklet would serve as a useful resource for adoption agencies, foster support agencies, therapists and psychiatrists to distribute to parents. Parents seeking an introduction to attachment issues and solutions will also enjoy the clear, concise overview of a complex and rather frightening topic.
