Free text The authors present us with the frequent situations arising from placement of very troubled children with substitute families who are not sufficiently prepared and supported for the challenges that these children bring to their homes, often precipitating disruption of the placement, as well as causing great stress to relationships in the families. These children come to their foster or adoptive families having suffered from severe abuse, sexual abuse and neglect. With case histories to illustrate the types of situations, the authors present five categories of seriously disturbed children in foster or adoptive families, with hallmark signs for each: the Antisocial Type, Overanxious/Insecure Type; Withdrawn/Asocial Type; Inadequate/Dependent Type; Mixed Type. A variety of "unconventional" types of treatments are suggested, with illustrations from real-life situations encountered by therapists
