Transracial Adoption and Foster Care: Practice issues for Professionals
Transracial adoption and foster care has been a controversial topic throughout this decade - a topic that has led to arguments and divisions between families, neighborhoods, professionals, and policymakers on both local and national levels. The purpose of this book is to go beyond the arguments and ask the questions: How do we as professionals help children and families make transracial adoptions and foster placements work?
Dr. Joseph Crumbley, a well-respected authority on transracial adoption and foster care, describes specific ways that practitioners can work with transracial families to ensure that children develop positive racial and cultural identities as well as how professionals can better serve these families. Dr Crumbley also addresses such professional concerns as cultural competence and recruitment of minority adoptive and foster parents. Case studies and "myths" of transracial adoption provide valuable background information for child welfare professionals.
