Product Description

Review

This exciting new book by the authors of 'New Families, Old Scripts' starts from the latest findings on brain development from the field of neuroscience and how this information is central to understanding the principles of developmentally reparenting children who have experienced a traumatic start in their early life. The book is both informative, presenting scientific information in an accessible format and instructive, giving countless practical examples and scenarios which can be used by parents and professionals alike. The principles of developmental reparenting are spelt out throughout each chapter of the book. Adoptive parents and foster carers are encouraged to look at their own attachment history to make sense of their relationship with their children. Readers are encouraged to practice changing their mindset to PARCEL (being playful, accepting ,responsive, curious, empathetic and loving) when parenting traumatised children. This book is a great resource for both parents who are parenting vulnerable traumatised children and those professionals who are supporting them. --Fiona Lettice, adoptive parent

Review

This book provides a useful resource full of relevant information for current adoptive parents and those who may be considering offering a home to a troubled child. (Young Minds Magazine)

This book is full of enthusiasm, written by people passionate and knowledgeable about their subject. The content is excellent, and it is a thoughtful book full of wise and useful advice. (Youth in Mind)

Caroline Archer and Christine Gordon have clearly researched the most recent literature in neuroscience, trauma, human development, and developmental parenting. [The book features] theoretically sound and well researched information presented in a manner that will be palatable to frustrated and challenged parents.It also provides explicit details of how parents may respond to difficult situations--complete with examples of verbal responses that may be helpful in ameliorating extremely intense situations. (Extracted from a foreword by Gregory C. Keck, Ph.D., Founder/Director of the Attachment and Bonding Center of Ohio; co-author of Adopting the Hurt Child, Parenting the Hurt Child, and author of Parenting Adopted Adolescents.)

This exciting new book by the authors of "New Families, Old Scripts" starts from the latest findings on brain development from the field of neuroscience and how this information is central to understanding the principles of "developmentally reparenting" children who have experienced a traumatic start in their early life.

The book is both informative, presenting scientific information in an accessible format and instructive, giving countless practical examples and scenarios which can be used by parents and professionals alike.

The principles of "developmental reparenting" are spelt out throughout each chapter of the book. Adoptive parents and foster carers are encouraged to look at their own attachment history to make sense of their relationship with their children.

Readers are encouraged to "practice" changing their mindset to PARCEL (being playful, accepting, responsive, curious, empathetic and loving) when parenting traumatised children.

This book is a great resource for both parents who are parenting vulnerable traumatised children and those professionals who are supporting them.

(Fiona Lettice, adoptive parent)

The authors, Caroline Archer and Christine Gordon, are both adoptive parents. The also have years of experience working professionally in adoption services and therapeutic teams... The book is primarily aimed at adoptive parents but would equally be of use to anyone who works with children who have experiences difficult and disrupted early stats to life, such as social workers, teachers and psychologists... The insights provided, which are linked to research, are offered in a way that are positive and reassuring for adoptive families... The appendices and resource section are a veritable gold mine of information... including contact details for organisations that can offer support, practical strategies, hand-outs and a glossary... The text give a comprehensive and insightful view into many of the unique aspect of parenting a child that has experienced trauma and is then place for permanence with an initially unfamiliar family. (Laura Dunstan, EP Debate - British Psychological Society)

This is the kind of book that you need to underline key sentences and bookmark nearly every page. Great science behind the subject and some really good ideas to try. Have tried some on my autistic son and the traumatised children that I work with; I have had some pleasing results. It's not a quick fix but the strategies have potential to change lives. I have talked about it so much at work that my colleagues are buying the book as well. Definitely recommend!

Combines science of neurobiology with immensely practical and experience-based approaches to reparenting traumatised children. Both extremely challenging and very readable.
