In 1982, Dr. McArthur coauthored the manual with Dr. Glen
Roberts of the Roberts Apperception Test for Children (RATC), a projective test
that has been used widely with over a million children. By 1988,
she had published one of the few books on the borderline
patient, written specifically for educated lay public, clients,
and therapists entitled
Birth of a Self in Adulthood, which is a five-star book
available on Amazon.com.
Two other books are being completed for publication. The first
is Love Beyond Love, a memoir of Dorothea’s family
journey through open, closed and cooperative adoption and all of
the learning that took place for everyone. In this book,
Dorothea has also shared the knowledge she gained from assisting
many members of the adoption triangle, (adoptees, birth parents,
and adoptive parents) within her practice.
Tomorrow’s Child has been written with the help of
award winning author, Suzanne Arms. This book contains a
Parent-Child Checklist and a set of Children’s Rights with ways
to actualize those needs and rights. Responsibilities of parents
and teachers are presented within the home and community through
specific case examples.
