The Primal Wound
Every child who is separated from his or her biological mother will experience abandonment and loss. The key word here is "experience," because many people would like to believe that relinquishment and adoption are simply concepts, and that the very real pain that results can be overcome by intellectual understanding or legislative amendment.
The Theraplay Institute
Theraplay was developed by clinical psychologist Ann M. Jernberg, Ph.D. It has been used extensively since 1967 in Head Start and day care centers, special education classrooms, early intervention and parenting programs, residential and out-patient treatment centers and private family practice. Because of its relationship enhancing aspects, Theraplay is used effectively with children diagnosed as having autism or pervasive developmental disorders, attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorders, attachment disorders, adjustment disorders, anxiety disorders and depression.
