Nurturing Adoptions

Creating Resilience After Neglect and Trauma

By Deborah D. Gray

Order Book from Amazon

Review by Allison Martin

Here is another exceptional resource from Deborah Gray. Nurturing Adoptions is the professional companion and extension to her first book, Attaching in Adoption. It is difficult to find a therapist who has understanding of trauma, trauma, abuse or adoption issues, and understands ways to provide helpful therapy. This is a goldmine of information for the adoption world, for parents and professionals.

Nurturing Adoptions is a guide for social workers and psychologists who provide therapy for adopted children and teens suffering from neglect or abuse. This book is a wonderful resource for parents adopting children through the US social services system, from Eastern Europe and older children from other countries. The trauma caused by long years in orphanages, neglect by parents, frequent transitions, and even abuse are well documented in this book. Dr. Gray delves into the myriad ways that children can be affected by adverse circumstances - biological, psychological, behavioral, and even moral. She teaches ways to find the child's point of view, and key points of stress, and to help reframe their awareness and behavior into a more positive and adaptive structure, ultimately leading to more balanced and fruitful lives. Dr. Gray's advice is always practical and well researched, but also sympathetic. This is an excellent resource for anyone interested in attachment and older child adoption.
