ICP was founded to educate parents and professionals on issues pertaining to children’s mental health, and to promote the psychological and emotional well-being of children and adolescents. Our mission is to empower parents, caregivers, and professionals by giving them pertinent insights, skills, and tools necessary to help children thrive. It is helpful for adoptive families to have a good understanding of the difference between healthy secure attachments and insecure attachments and what parents can do to encourage secure attachments with children who have come into a family through adoption.
