Description - Handbook of Adoption by Rafael Art Javier

The Handbook of Adoption is the first text to specifically address adoption concerns and also serves as a sourcebook to train mental health and behavioural health professionals. This book addresses topics in adoption that reflect the many dimensions of theory, research, development, race, adjustment and clinical practice which can, and do, affect adoption triad members. Contributors to this volume are experts, many of whom are directly involved in adoption-related research and practice and who can provide insight from personal and professional experience. Key features include: - the combination of theory with concrete examples that reflect real-life situations in the treatment issues and the training and education sections of each chapter; - three learning goals for each chapter as well as three to four major questions to summarize the goals of the chapter; - reflection questions in each section of the text that allow readers to apply the knowledge they have learnt from each section.
