Overview

Focusing on developmental and clinical issues in children's adjustment to adoption, the authors introduce this volume with an overview of historical and contemporary perspectives, then explore various theories that have addressed the issue of psychological risk associated with adoption.

Following a review of empirical research on factors that influence the adjustment process, the authors discuss different types of adoption, analyze methodological problems, and discuss clinical and assessment issues that commonly arise in work with adoptees and their families.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Places adoption in historical context to address issues that affect both the process and outcome of adoption for children and their parents. Presents theoretical perspectives on the adoption process, along with supportive research, and looks at research on both the adjustment of children and parents to adoption itself and on psychological development over the course of childhood and adolescence. Concerns such as child abuse and parental drug abuse, and adoption across racial and cultural lines, are addressed. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
