The School's Role in Building up the Resiliency of Adopted Children-Muntean, Ana; Ungureanu, R.; Runcan, P.

Child Adoption takes place following a traumatic event: the abandonment of a child. An adopted child's development depends on many aspects among them, the school's environment. Bringing social capital and opportunities for raising self confidence, the school plays an important role in raising the child's resiliency. We discuss the development of 40 Romanian children, adopted at early age (0-4). The research team met the children at a later age (10-16). The evaluation of children and parents was done with instruments based on attachment theory. The conclusions will highlight the role played by school environment within the development of an adopted child's resiliency.
