Transracial Adoption and Foster Care: Practice Issues for Professionals

 

 

 

Transracial Adoption and Foster Care: Practice Issues for Professionals
by Joseph Crumbley

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 question: How do we as professionals help children and families make transracial adoptions and foster placements work?

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.

 

5 out of 5 stars A helpful book in overcoming racial discrimination, September 7, 2003

  Reviewer: Gisela Gasper Fitzgerald from USA

I welcome any book that is supportive of transracial adoptions and helps all members of the families involved to live in harmony. I agree with the author that love is not enough. Unlike in my family's same-race adoption, in a transracial adoption the parents need to acknowledge the existence of prejudice, explain to the child why his/her racial or cultural group is mistreated, provide the child with a repertoire of responses to racial discrimination and provide the child with role models and positive contact within the community. We have transracial adoptions in our neighborhood and I hope that the adoptive parents (all Caucasians) receive plenty of help from their agencies with those issues. They would be well advised to read this book.
