Grotevant, Harold D.; Dunbar, Nora; Kohler, Julie K.; Esau, Amy M. Lash
Family Relations, v49 n4 p379-87 Oct 2000
Explores the meaning of adoptive identity, and the sense of who one is as an adoptive person; then looks at identity within the context of recent social changes. Considers three contexts of intrapsychic, family environment, and contexts beyond the family (i.e., relationships with friends, connection to community). Discusses implications for professionals working with adopted persons. (Author/JDM)
