The Art and Science of Transplanting Children

By Dr. Gordon Neufeld, Ph.D. and facilitated by Rebecca Janke, MSW RSW

Parenting children who have been adopted is a rewarding task but involves distinct challenges. Transplanting children – moving a child from one primary caregiver to another - constitutes the most difficult challenge in raising children. The impact of attachment disruption can be profound as children recover from the impact of the attachment disruption. Dr. Neufeld has dealt with transplanted children and the adults raising them for close to forty years. From his years of experience and his profound knowledge of attachment and human vulnerability, he shares his insights. The objective of this 8-week course is to provide effective and encouraging strategies to resolve these challenges and support a strong parent and children relationship.

Rebecca Janke is a social worker with Sunrise who specializes in working with families who

have adopted. Each week we will review the DVD material presented by Dr. Gordon Neufeld and then Rebecca will facilitate a discussion with the aim for participants to directly apply the concepts to their lives. For more information about Rebecca visit: and for information about Dr. Neufeld visit:
