This paper examines associations between internalizing and externalizing psychopathology and inflammation in adolescents with a history of severe psychosocial deprivation and children reared in typical family contexts. The paper presents findings from the Bucharest Early Intervention Project, a longitudinal randomized trial of high-quality foster care as an alternative to institutional care.
This study examined whether global deficits in executive functioning (EF) mediate the association between severe childhood neglect and general v. specific psychopathology in adolescence. The sample consisted of 188 children from the Bucharest Early Intervention Project, a longitudinal study examining the brain and behavioral development of children reared in Romanian institutions and a comparison group of never-institutionalized children.
This article explores how the type of placement in children's social care influences identity formation and contact with the birth family.

"Vulnerable children under the care of the Romanian state are up to 15 times more likely to be diagnosed with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, or ADHD, than other Romanian children, sparking fears that some are being prescribed drugs to subdue challenging behaviour," according to this article from Balkan Insight.
The aim of this article is to analyse the evaluations made by the main stakeholders involved in the school situation of young people in residential care and propose an explanatory model of their level of school satisfaction (SS) based on variables related to the youngsters' subjective well-being.
The content of this Call to Action comes from what was heard from young people with care experience as well as from the professionals working with them. It outlines three primary actions to realize careleavers' rights in the law and in practice and to allocate adequate funds for realizing these rights.
