Joining New Families Description

Joining New Families is based on a research study which followed 61children who were placed, between 5 and 9 years old, with adoptiveor permanent foster families. Most of the children had previouslybeen maltreated. The study focused on the problems and strengthsthat these children brought to their new families; how the newfamilies coped; and the factors associated with the placementsbecoming stable and secure. The authors provide a detailedpresentation of the findings from this unique study and highlightthe implications for policy and practice. Key factors examinedinclude
* the children s pre-placement experiences
* the quality of preparatory work with the children andfamilies
* the characteristics of the new parents and their parentingstyle
* the children s emotional and behavioural difficulties
* the development of relationships within the new family
* the type and quality of post-placement support
Presenting new information and recommendations for futureplacements, Joining New Families is a valuable resource for anyoneinvolved in establishing permanent placements for older children.
