Reviews

"The long-awaited book edited by well-known adoption authorities . . . . It is sure to become a standard text at schools of social work, and ought to be required reading for psychologists and health care professionals." --Adopted Child "Chapters by 30 authors cover theoretical perspectives, recent research, clinical issues, and changing social policy related to the legal and psychological rights of adoptees to "openness." The initial chapter, by Brodzinsky, provides an excellent description of a coping model that enables young adoptees to offset the greater psychological vulnerability inherent in adoption. . . .The book is likely to be seen as an important one and should be valuable to the various professional disciplines working in the field of adoption." --Readings: A Journal of Reviews and Commentary in Mental Health "In this book, theoretical, empirical, clinical and social policy issues offer new insights into the problems facing parents of adopted children, and especially the children themselves." --Adolescence "Brodzinsky and Schechter have delivered a valuable collection of chapters dealing with a wide range of theoretical, empirical, and practical issues related to adoption. . . .Brodzinsky and Schechter are to be commended for helping to bring adoption out of the realm of opinion by securing its footing on a strong research base." --Contemporary Psychology "An outstanding collection of articles on many aspects of adoption. . . .An extremely valuable 32-page list of references is included. . . .This book fills a previously unmet need in the field." --Arkansas Department of Human Services Newsletter "A well edited, readable, interesting, and sometimes provocative volume. It appeared to touch on most. . .important themes and dilemmas of adoption. . . .Chapters in the clinical section provide ideas and techniques that are usable in the therapy room." --Child, Youth & Family Services Quarterly "The Psychology of Adoption is a book designed to make a real contribution to the resources of adoption professionals that, for the most part, achieves its objective. The balance of the articles are well considered, strongly connected to the topics identified by the editors, and written on a consistent level." --Social Science Review "Professionals from any of the disciplines touched by adoption . . . will find this resource very useful as a ready analysis of the available adoption research. Each chapter is a free-standing research review on the topic identified as a chapter theme." --OURS magazine "The long-awaited book edited by well-known adoption authorities . . . .
