Life Work with Children Who are Fostered or Adopted really challenges us to think about who is holding the history for the child, and how we can pull these pieces together into a coherent story to be visited at intervals throughout the child's life. With clear understanding about why life work needs to be an ongoing process, this book has lots of practical information about a range of ways we can find, hold and share the story with the child.
