by Andrade, Lucy Maribel, M.S.W., California State University, Long Beach, 2019, 75; 13859737
Abstract (Summary)

This thesis curriculum project features an ADOPT Kit (Adoption Disruption Obtaining Peace and Tranquility). It provides a Facilitator’s Guide and Workbook for meetings in which parents who have brought abused and neglected children into their families can learn how to prevent disruptions (when children have to leave) and finalize adoptions. The ADOPT Kit curriculum includes definitions, rationale, vignettes, and resources to enhance a learning opportunity. Activities promote group discussions and concepts for learning enhancement. The overarching theme is ensuring that adoptive families are connected to social workers, other helping professionals, and other adoptive families as partners and advocates. The aim is to help ensure that children who have experienced emotional loss and trauma can finally be connected to parents who intend to provide them with continuity and commitment and the legal and social status that comes from having families of their own.
