L'attachement est au coeur de la vie familiale, et encore plus quand il s'agit du placement et de l'adoption. La théorie de l'attachement et la recherche portant sur le développement fournissent un cadre essentiel pour comprendre le comportement d'enfants aux expériences précoces complexes, et saisir leurs points forts et leurs difficultés. Cet ouvrage de référence se veut à la fois théorique et pratique. Il présente les principes de la théorie, et rend compte des modes sécure, insécures et désorganisé du développement de l'attachement depuis la naissance jusqu'à l'âge adulte. Il étudie les conséquences des expériences d'abus, de négligence et de la séparation sur le comportement des enfants dans les familles d'accueil et les familles adoptives. Il détaille également les différentes dimensions du rôle parental qui permettent d'aider les enfants à se sentir davantage en sécurité ainsi qu'à réaliser leur potentiel dans la famille, à l'école ou ailleurs. Enfin, les auteurs présentent le rôle essentiel que jouent les travailleurs sociaux. En prenant en compte la dimension de l'attachement, ils peuvent agir dans les différents domaines de la pratique du placement, notamment le contact des enfants avec leur famille biologique, et conseiller utilement les parents de familles d'accueil et adoptives sur la façon de fournir une base de sécurité à leur enfant. Le livre est parcouru de nombreux exemples de cas, qui permettent de communiquer de façon vivante les propos des familles d'accueil et des familles adoptives. Ils illustrent aussi comment apporter le soutien requis aux parents de familles d'accueil et adoptives. Cet ouvrage s'adresse aux psychiatres, psychologues, pédiatres, infirmiers et à leurs étudiants, aux praticiens du travail social, assistants sociaux et éducateurs, tout comme aux parents adoptifs et de familles d'accueil. Il intéressera également tous ceux qui souhaitent s'assurer que les enfants devant être placés ou adoptés bénéficient de la meilleure expérience possible. "D'habitude, on cherche à prouver que l'adoption est la meilleure ou la pire des aventures familiales. Cette fois-ci, Gillian Schofield et Mary Beek se servent de la théorie et des recherches sur l'attachement pour analyser les situations d'adoption et d'accueil [....] Alors, l'espoir devient réalisable".

The Measure of America, 2010-2011, is the definitive report on the overall well-being of all Americans. How are Americans doing—compared to one another and compared to the rest of the world? This important, easy-to-understand guide will provide all of the essential information on the current state of America. This fully illustrated report, with over 130 color images, is based on the groundbreaking American Human Development Index, which provides a single measure of the well-being for all Americans, disaggregated by state and congressional district, as well as by race, gender, and ethnicity. The Index rankings of the 50 states and 435 congressional districts reveal huge disparities in the health, education, and living standards of different groups. For example, overall, Connecticut ranked first among states on the 2008-2009 Index, and Mississippi ranked last, suggesting that there is a 30-year gap in human development between the two states. Further, among congressional districts, New York’s 14th District, in Manhattan, ranked first, and California’s 20th District, near Fresno, ranked last. The average resident of New York’s 14th District earned over three times as much as the average resident of California’s 20th District, lived over four years longer, and was ten times as likely to have a college degree. The second in the American Human Development Report series, the 2010-2011 edition features a completely updated Index, new findings on the well-being of different racial and ethnic groups from state to state, and a closer look at disparities within major metro areas. It also shines a spotlight on threats to progress and opportunity for some Americans as well as highlighting tested approaches to fostering resilience among different groups. Using a revelatory framework for explaining the very nature of human progress, this report can be used not only as a way to measure America but also to build upon past policy successes, protect the progress made over the last half century from new risks, and create an infrastructure of opportunity that can serve a new generation of Americans. Beautifully illustrated with stunning four-color graphics that allow for a quick visual understanding of often complex but important issues, The Measure of America is essential reading for all Americans, especially for social scientists, policy makers, and pundits who want to understand where Americans stand today.

Attachment theory occupies an integrative position between psychodynamic therapy and various perspectives within empirical psychology. Since therapy began, its way of thinking has been to interpret mental processes in relation to meaningful psychological objects between children and parents, partners, friends and within individual therapy. The current volume appraises how attachment interprets by summarising the research literature in developmental psychology in order to clarify conclusions that support practice. One aim is to promote the recognition of attachment processes as they occur between self and others in the moment. When it is possible to identify attachment in this way, implied events in clients’ lives can come into shared understanding. Part I considers the received wisdom about attachment, and summarises the literature and what it means for understanding relationships and defences as part of development. Part II considers attachment in relation to emotional regulation and provides some examples. Part III applies the clarified understanding of attachment processes to inform assessment and therapy, and more broadly, mental health work in general. The ideas of Sigmund Freud and John Bowlby are used to reinvigorate psychodynamic practice.
