Transracial Adoption in Black and White: A Survey of Social Worker Attitudes.
Fenster, Judy
Adoption Quarterly, v5 n4 p33-58 2002
Assessed attitudes of U.S. social workers regarding transracial adoption (TRA), specifically black children being adopted by white parents. Found that white social workers were more in favor of TRA than black social workers. African American respondents who were members of the National Association of Black Social Workers had less favorable attitudes toward TRA than black nonmembers. For black respondents, TRA attitudes related to income level and ethnic identification. (Author/KB)
