Warren, Bruce L.; Ferman, Patricia Ryan
Presented is Volume 1 of a final report on a project to determine policies likely to result in maximized adoptive placements for mentally, emotionally, or physically handicapped children. It is explained that 205 foster care and adoption workers and 79 agency directors in six states (Indiana, Michigan, Ohio, Alabama, Georgia, and North Carolina) were surveyed concerning their current practices. The project's background goals, methodology, and research techniques are described; and a detailed analysis is provided of such aspects as the agencies' attitudes, procedures, and programs for placing handicapped children as well as the characteristics, attitudes, and interaction patterns of four categories of adoption workers or supervisors.
