Counselling Adoptees: Research and Practice

  • Author(s) / Creator(s)
  • The purpose of this Master’s project was to conduct a thorough literature review on adoption, with a specific focus on research conducted on adoptees. This review highlights adoptee experiences, including both psychological concerns and resiliency, and provides evidence that this group has been overly pathologized in existing research and practice. Topics that were found to be common concerns for all adoptees as well as for those with minority status are addressed, and potential counselling approaches are outlined for working therapeutically with adoptees. The project aimed to provide foundational knowledge on counselling adoptees that could be used to educate new and current mental health workers with limited experience in serving this unique group.
