Understanding Birth Parents: Lessons from Attribution Theory.
Munro, Eileen
Adoption & Fostering, v20 n2 p44-49 Sum 1996
Draws from psychological insights provided by attribution theory to examine the quality of relationship between birth parents, foster carers, and social service professionals. Advocates training both foster carers and social workers toward developing a more tolerant view and, where possible, replacing blame with compassion based on appreciation of social and psychological forces that are outside a person's conscious control.
