Philips, Rena, ed. (2004) Children exposed to parental substance misuse: implications for family placement. London: British Association for Adoption and Fostering .

Increased awareness of the effects on children of drugs, alcohol and other substances used by parents, especially mothers during pregnancy, has raised some searching questions. Accessibly written for the non-medical reader, this book considers the impact - psychological, social, behavioural and genetic - on children exposed to parental substance abuse and tackles the challenges posed in parenting children damaged in this way.
