You don’t have to spend much time in the adoption and foster care world before you hear about this book. Dr. Karyn Purvis and Texas Christian University’s research on trauma informed interventions are second to none. “The Connected Child” is a great place to start if you are considering either foster care or adoption (or both). You will learn to understand the effects of trauma on the brain (even trauma the child doesn’t remember) and receive the tools you need to effectively parent children suffering from trauma.
