Foster children, and children who aren't "in the system" but who have experienced abuse,
frequently suffer from emotional and psychological trauma. The information on these pages is not intended to be a diagnostic
tool. Rather, it is intended to give you, the caretaker, an idea of what a therapist means when he characterizes your child
with a diagnosis. And I have included URLs to other websites where you can get more information and/or find out what YOU can
do to help in the treatment.
