The CURA publications library is currently being digitized by the University of Minnesota Digital Conservancy. When the project is complete, the entire CURA publications library will be online and fully searchable. Unfortunately, during this process we are not able to honor individual requests for publications . Additionally, we no longer have physical copies of publications to send out.

New publications are digitized daily and the publications catalog on the CURA website is not automatically updated with links to scanned copies, so please search the CURA collection at the Digital Conservancy for the publications you are looking for:

Considering Attachment Issues in Permanency Decisions.

Egeland, Byron, Martha Farrell Erickson, and Esther Wattenberg.

This paper is a summary of a question-and-answer session with three nationally and internationally recognized experts on the concept of parent-child attachment. Protecting children from abuse and neglect confronts the child welfare field with daunting decisions that will have life-shaping consequences for both high-risk families and their children. These decisions, to be made within strict time limits, deal with removing a child from the birth family, placement, reunification, adoption, guardianship, or long-term foster care. The assessment of the child-parent interaction is one of the prime factors in arriving at these crucial decisions.
