Luke F. Grande

In this discussion of Kernberg's paper, Silverman notes that adoption is only one factor in personality development. He focuses on the child's anxiety and rage over abandonment and on various factors that lead to reactions of guilt. He stresses the importance of facilitating attachment between adoptive parents and child, and of informing the child about the adoption at an appropriate phase of development.
