Weir, Kyle N.
Adoption Quarterly, v3 n3 p25-50 2000
Examines the developmental, familial, and peer deterrents that form barriers to adoption placement, based on interviews with 17 teen mothers in a residential facility. Analyzes responses based on an Eriksonian developmental model, and notes the role of family "cutoffs" and "re-admissions" and peer pressure as deterrents to adoption. Suggests family therapy interventions to facilitate adoption placement. (JPB)
