Helping Foster and Adoptive Families Cope With Trauma: A Guide for Pediatricians by the American Academy of Pediatricians

The purpose of this guide is to support adoptive and foster families by strengthening the abilities of pediatricians to:
  • identify traumatized children, educate families about toxic stress and the possible biological, behavioral, and social manifestations of early childhood trauma, and
  • empower families to respond to their child’s behavior in a manner that acknowledges past trauma but promotes the learning of new, more adaptive reactions to stress.
