PACS has three earlier publications written by adoptive parents, based on the concept of attachment,
which have made a valuable contribution to the understanding of children’s development.
Leaflet – ‘Adoption, attachment issues and your school’.
Booklet – ‘Stop Wasting My Time! Case studies of pupils with attachment issues in schools, with special reference to looked after and adopted children’.
Booklet – ‘Go Away people! Encounters in daily living with looked after and adopted children and young people with attachment issues.
The UK-wide response to and demand for the publications from families, adoption agencies and schools has been considerable. They are successful as they are short, concise, and presented in an attractive format.
"I am the adoptive mother of a boy who has just started secondary school. In the context of his problems I was advised to look at your leaflet as being the best on the subject. I have found it immensely helpful and it has really helped my understanding, never mind the teachers! I am recommending it to all sorts of people, including the post adoption worker." Adoptive parent.
