The Primal Wound is a book which is revolutionizing the way we think about adoption. In its application of information about pre- and perinatal psychology, attachment, bonding, and loss, it clarifies the effects of separation from the birth mother on adopted children. In addition, it gives those children, whose pain has long been unacknowledged or misunderstood, validation for their feelings, as well as explanations for their behavior. Since its original publication in 1993, The Primal Wound has become a classic in adoption literature and is considered the adoptees' bible. The insight which is brought to the experiences of abandonment and loss will contribute not only to the healing of adoptees, adoptive families, and birth parents, but will bring understanding and encouragement to anyone who has ever felt abandoned.

Review:
This book is a "must-read" for every adoption professional. There is valuable information here, which will only be completely understood by the triad to which it belongs...As both an adoptee and a birth mother, my response was often visceral...sometimes nearly overwhelmed by the truth and clarity in her writing --Katherine Pederson, Washington Adoption Reunion Movement

When you want to know about Nigeria, do you ask Norwegians? If you want to know what it's like to be adopted, ask an expert: ask an adoptee. Better you read The Primal Wound with an adoptee, ask her how she feels about it...and listen --Sarah Alexander
