    Assessing Adoptive and Foster Parents: Improving Analysis and Understanding of Parenting Capacity

    by Kim S. Golding

Children with histories of trauma, loss and hurt need to join families in which parents exhibit the ability to be good at relationships, able to manage their own stress and bond with the child in their care. In this book, leading...
