Free text Based on a research programme, undertaken by Save the Children, into residential care and alternative approaches - book that approaches the cross-cultural dimension to notions of separation and care, argues for more attention to be paid to psychological needs of children when considering placement. The principal focus of this book is on those categories of children whose parents are unable or unwilling to care for them – orphaned, abandoned, rejected and destitute children, and those who have become inadvertently separated through such circumstance as armed conflict or natural disaster. The book examines policy and practices issues in three main areas: residential care, prevention and leaving care, and substitute family care (adoption, fostering, inter-country adoption).
