Facililtating Introductory Adoption Education for Rural Prospective Adoptive Parents by the Use of Mailed Multi-Media Educational Packets.
Naber, Martha B.
This practicum sought to address the need for increased opportunities for prospective adoptive parents to gain introductory knowledge regarding adoption issues and processes in a rural state in the northeastern United States. A multimedia educational unit containing a 45-minute videotaped presentation and various written materials were developed and produced. Limited advertising was utilized to inform the public of the availability of the unit, which was mailed to 13 prospective adoptive parents who inquired about it. Parent evaluations of the unit indicated that most prospective parents believed that they had gained significant information from the unit, and felt that it was a valuable tool for prospective adoptive parents. Two appendices contain parent survey questionnaires. (MDM)
