Free text This video is designed to enhance the preparation and training of foster carers and adoptive parents. In the video, Dan Hughes talks to an adoptive parent, about the following issues: recent research that has extended our understanding of the impact of trauma on children and their early development; the role of foster carers and adoptive parents as "therapeutic parents"; long term support to families and parents in strategies for coping with oppositional behaviour; the role of social worker and therapists in helping children to develop attachments. (Adapted from editor's abstract)
