Graham Music (chapter 4) discusses the neurological changes that can take place as a result of trauma. The child psychotherapist may encounter children who have been deeply fragmented by traumatic experiences; how much would depend on the developmental stage of that particular child. Too often we encounter children whose stories of sexual abuse have not been believed by adults or have not been legally proven to have taken place. When the child experiences adult denial of his actual or emotional truth, there can be a serious problem for that child, who can be left with deep self-doubt, or with enduring rage, cynicism, and lack of trust in the adults who are supposed to care for him.
Rushton, Monck, Upright, and Davison (2006) in a study funded by the DfES, have recently started to evaluate interventions based on these ideas. Similarly, offering children and young people the chance to work on their experiences in a range of ways is crucial for the success of their placements. We do not yet have a substantial evidence base to guide the work with this group of children. What is clear is that the complexity of their problems beneﬁts from a multi-systemic therapy approach, involving the child, the family, and the school.
The explanation that the child’s slow development may be to be expected, considering their past deﬁcits of care, and is not a fault inherent either in the child or in their current parenting, reduces unrealistic expectations, guilt, and anxiety. The particular issues for fostered and adopted children can be embedded in the stages of the life cycle of the family. Key stages such as going to school, entering puberty and adolescence, and leaving home need an adjustment of family dynamics. Living in an alternative family brings other issues that have to be addressed over and over again during the course of these stages of development.
