Handbook of Adoption

The newly released Handbook of Adoption is an aptly named book covering every aspect of adoption-related issues that can affect adoption triad members. Designed for practitioners, counselors, researchers, students, and families, the handbook includes contributions from nationally known adoption experts on major theoretical, research, and relationship issues surrounding adoption. The 33 chapters are divided among 9 sections, including:

  • Foundation of adoption, including history, statistics, and trends
  • Theoretical issues, including adoptive identity
  • Transracial and international adoption
  • Special issues, including open adoption and kinship relationships for children in foster care
  • Training and education for adoption therapy competence
  • Research findings on adoption work
  • Assessment and treatment issues

Handbook of Adoption: Implications for Researchers, Practitioners, and Families, by Rafael Javier, Amanda Baden, Frank Biafora, and Alina Camacho-Gingerich (editors), is available through Sage Publications:
