The post-institutionalised child  
www.bensoc.org.au www.bensoc.org.au
Each year there are over 10 thousand intercountry adoptions worldwide. Many of these children have spent at least some of their life in an orphanage, experiencing institutional care, which has had a far-reaching impact on them. Most of these children will have some interaction with paediatric health or other childcare professionals in the months and years after their adoption. However, because theirs is a relatively rare situation it is understandable that knowledge of their special needs is outside the experience of most professionals. Nevertheless, given information, professionals can use their specialised skills to assist parents and play an important role in the lives of adoptive families.

Lifelong Issues in Adoption by Deborah N. Silverstein and Sharon Kaplan  
www.aican.org www.aican.org
Adoption is a lifelong, intergenerational process which unites the triad of birth families, adoptees and adoptive families forever. Adoption, especially of adolescents, can lead to both great joy and tremendous pain. Recognising the core issues in adoption is one intervention that can assist triad members and professionals working in adoption better to understand each other and the residual effects of the adoption experience. Adoption triggers seven lifelong or core issues for all triad members, regardless of the circumstances of the adoption or the characteristics of the participants:

Loss
Rejection
Guilt and Shame
Grief
Identity
Intimacy
Mastery/Control

Trauma, adversity and kids - Treating traumatised kids - Are the current approaches to treating traumatized kids actually making them better?
helpingkidswithtrauma.blogspot.com.au helpingkidswithtrauma.blogspot.com.au
More and more research is telling us about the long-term negative consequences of trauma and adversity in childhood with correlations between childhood trauma and poor mental and physical health outcomes across the lifespan. So, it makes sense that there should be a good evidence base for treating the effects of childhood trauma.

In February this year, researchers in the United States undertook a Comparative Effectiveness Review (CER) examining the evidence for interventions that target traumatic stress symptoms and syndromes associated with nonrelational trauma, such as exposure to war, disasters and accidents. The review was sponsored by the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ). CERs are designed to guide health care decisions by providing evidence on the effectiveness, benefits and harms of different types of interventions.

The authors noted in their paper – although several guidelines on the treatment of PTSD in childhood and adolescence exist, the recommendations are inconsistent and largely not based on evidence from high-quality clinical trials or comparative effectiveness reviews (CERs).
