Constancy and Permanence: Introduction
This is the first in a series about “Constancy” and “Permanence” as it applies to child development. These video clips are good for any parent to watch but should be of particular interest to parents of children who were adopted from foster care or internationally. Many children have been traumatized and as a result experience attachment struggles. Since 1985, Holly van Gulden has been teaching and counseling adoptive and foster parents and training adoption professionals. She has worked throughout the United States, England, Scotland, and Canada. In addition, for over fifteen years, she has codirected Adoptive Family Counseling Center.
We highly recommend this series for educators who want to understand children with attachment and trauma issues.
