This text provides coverage of the major research and theoretical perspectives on adoption, reviewing the work of several disciplines within psychology, sociology and social work. With the change in the pool of children available for adoption, the issues surrounding adoption have increased in complexity. As older and more disturbed children are being placed for adoption, the demands these children make on post-adoption workers and parents is considerable. The book introduces the reader to the range of knowledge and understanding on the development of children once adopted.
