Abstract

"Adoption Matters is a specialist voluntary adoption agency which operates in the north-west of England and north east Wales. In 2009, in recognition of the increasing challenges presented by children currently being placed for adoption, many of whom have a history of abuse, trauma or neglect, the agency developed a specialist parenting programme to assist adoptive parents in meeting children’s needs. This research focuses on testing how effective the programme was in enhancing the adoptive parents’ skill and confidence in parenting and, more specifically, whether it helped them in the development of their relationship with the child." - Page 3.
