The Changing Face of Adoption

A review of recent literature (Family Studies 2015, International Journal of Behavior Development 2010, University of Minnesota 2008) has shown that adopted children are more vulnerable to a host of psychological and school-related problems compared to their non-adopted peers, and that the rate of referral of adopted children to mental-health facilities is far above what would be expected given their representation in the general population. Our understanding of the basis for these problems remains unclear. This article will trace evolving adoption practices and offer some insights into the problems facing helping professionals who work with adopted children, and the children themselves.
