Free text The authors provide information and definitions of " the hurt child " to guide adoptive parents through " the frustrations, heartache, and hope " associated with the adoptions of emotionally wounded, older children, who may have been abused and neglected in their birth families, and may have been through a succession of temporary or failed placements. (the methods used by these therapists have sometimes been thought inadequate for certain children with severe symptoms)
