Multi-agency and specialist working to meet the mental health needs of children in care and adopted

Book Summary:

More than half of children either in foster care, or adopted from care in the developed world, have a measurable need for mental health services, while up to one quarter present with complex and severe trauma- and attachment-related psychological disorders.

This book outlines how services can effectively detect, prevent, and treat mental health difficulties in this vulnerable population.
