A proposal for a brief-term post-adoption intervention in the attachment-perspective: a single case study with a late-adopted child and his adoptive mother
AbstractA growing body of attachment literature has focused on bridging the gap between research and clinical applications, even in clinical work with adoptive families. A brief-term clinical intervention focused on a multi-method assessment of attachment relationships and representations was performed in the first year after placement. This single case study aimed at analysing the attachment outcomes, through a long-term follow-up, both for the adoptive mother and her late-adopted son. We assumed that this five-session attachmentoriented intervention could help the mother enhance her sensitivity skills and her ability to understand both her own past attachment experiences and her childâ€™s insecure attachment as a consequence of the failures of his previous experiences of care, supporting her sixyear old child in acquiring a positive image of himself and of others and the security of the caregiverâ€™s availability up to adolescence.
PlumX Metrics provide insights into the ways people interact with individual pieces of research output (articles, conference proceedings, book chapters, and many more) in the online environment. Examples include, when research is mentioned in the news or is tweeted about. Collectively known as PlumX Metrics, these metrics are divided into five categories to help make sense of the huge amounts of data involved and to enable analysis by comparing like with like.
