We are happy to announce the posting of 3 new literature reviews created by this initiative. The reviews are available in PDF format for download in our Resources Section.
For additional context:
To inform the development of this national training initiative, a needs assessment was conducted. The needs assessment included interviews with stakeholders, systematic literature reviews, information gathered from interviews with professionals in the field and a survey of states. The systematic review of the literature represents one component of the needs assessment. There were three literature reviews conducted for the needs assessment including a literature review specific to relative and non-relative foster/adoptive parents, a literature review specific to Native American foster/adoptive parents and a literature review specific to families who adopt via the intercountry or private domestic process.
