Adoptive Family Adjustment and Its Relation to Perceived Family Environment.
Martin, Betty; Kelly, Mary Margaret; Towner-Thyrum, Elizabeth
Adoption Quarterly, v3 n1 p49-60 1999
Interviewed adopted college students regarding perceptions of adoptive family life. Found that overall satisfaction with adoptive status and family life was the strongest predictor of perceived general family environment. Perception of adoptive parents' communication styles predicted different aspects of family environment. Acknowledgment of life differences resulting from adoptive status did not relate to family expressiveness. (Author/KB)
