  • ‘It starts when teachers are training’: The role of generalist and
           designated teachers in the educational experiences of children in care

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Elaine Matchett
      Pages: 120 - 133
      Abstract: Adoption & Fostering, Volume 46, Issue 2, Page 120-133, July 2022.
      This article assesses the significance of generalist and designated schoolteachers for the educational experiences of children in care. Data were gathered from semi-structured interviews with 21 care-experienced individuals aged between 18 and 27 and three senior employees of a children’s services department in an English local authority. Participants discussed the importance of relationships with key adults and peers, the complexity of disclosing their care status and their commitment to education. The results show that generalist teachers offer considerable support to children, far beyond their statutory responsibilities, but that the designated teacher role, although important, is not understood or utilised by their fellow teachers and the majority of pupils who are in care.

  • Psychological profiles of adoptees’ partners and their representations
           of the marital relationship

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Johanna Despax, Evelyne Bouteyre, Théo Guiller
      Pages: 134 - 150
      Abstract: Adoption & Fostering, Volume 46, Issue 2, Page 134-150, July 2022.
      Adopted adults are presented in the psychological literature as being highly vulnerable to mental health issues. It is probable, therefore, that this vulnerability will affect many aspects of their lives. One such area is their romantic relationships but, to our knowledge, research on this is noticeably sparse, especially with regard to the significance for adoptees’ partners. The objective of the present study was to fill this gap by: (1) comparing the psychological profiles of adoptees’ versus non-adoptees’ partners and exploring their representations of the marital relationship, and (2) investigating the links between the psychological and relational variables in these two groups. To achieve these goals, scales measuring attachment, mental health, dyadic coping and co-parenting were administered to 104 partners of adoptees and 104 partners of non-adoptees. Results showed that there was no difference between the two groups on any of the variables considered. However, a correlation analysis did reveal that dismissing attachment was more closely linked to co-parental conflicts among adoptees’ partners: the more dismissive the non-adopted partner, the fewer the co-parental conflicts. This correlation comparison suggests that dismissing attachment might be a protective factor for co-parental conflicts with the adopted partner, which is in line with some previous studies related to the specificities of attachment among adopted adults.

  • Dissociation, identity distress and rejection sensitivity in adult
           adoptees

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Lee J McLamb, Bailey Wagaman, Emalee Kerr, Steven L Berman
      Pages: 151 - 165
      Abstract: Adoption & Fostering, Volume 46, Issue 2, Page 151-165, July 2022.
      This US study examined dissociation, rejection sensitivity and identity distress among adults who experienced adoption as a child and the relationship between these factors. Further, groups of adoptees recruited through Amazon Mechanical Turk (MTurk) and social media were compared to assess whether these two recruitment methods achieve similar results. Adopted adults (n = 389) and non-adopted adults (n = 151) completed an online survey. Significant differences were found between adopted and non-adopted groups on the measures of dissociation, rejection sensitivity and identity. Rejection sensitivity and dissociation were also found to be better predictors of identity problems than adoption status alone. Recruitment methods resulted in significant differences on measures. Implications for consideration in a clinical setting are discussed as well as potential areas for future research.

  • ‘They shouldn’t have to ask’: Exploring the need for specialist
           mental health services for care-experienced and adopted children and their
           families

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Stephen Coulter, Suzanne Mooney, Mandi MacDonald, Lesa Daly
      Pages: 166 - 183
      Abstract: Adoption & Fostering, Volume 46, Issue 2, Page 166-183, July 2022.
      This article reports on a study conducted in two counties in the Republic of Ireland designed to elicit the views of fostering and adoption stakeholder groups on the mental health needs of the children, young people and families for whom they are responsible. Included in these groups are young people, adoptive parents, foster carers and professionals who manage and deliver mental health services or refer cases to them. Focus group methodology was employed to ascertain participants’ views. The emerging data was analysed thematically and the key findings include: the need for a universal and integrated system offering mental health services; the importance of an attachment- and trauma-informed approach, incorporating a ‘whole-family’ perspective; the difficulties many families face in accessing timely and appropriate services with the associated risk of destabilising placements; the tension created by the balance between crisis responses and longer-term therapeutic support; poor levels of communication and collaboration between services; and a general aspiration to fashion a dedicated therapeutically focused service open to all foster and adoptive children and their families. Findings and recommendations are discussed in light of the existing models of good practice for providing integrated mental health services.

  • The challenges that social care services face in relation to looked after
           children with neurodevelopmental disorders: A unique insight from a social
           worker perspective

      Abstract: Adoption & Fostering, Volume 46, Issue 2, Page 184-204, July 2022.
      Looked after children (LAC) continue to be one of the most vulnerable groups in society with numbers and rates in care increasing year-on-year. The aim of this study was to explore the unique perspectives, perceptions and opinions of experienced social workers on the little explored subject of neurodevelopmental disorders (NDDs) in this population. Using purposeful sampling, 10 social work professionals with extensive experience of working with these children were interviewed using a semi-structured interview. A thematic analysis using NVivo software was utilised to analyse, code and identify themes that contributed to the aims of the study. Four overarching themes and sub-themes emerged from the findings: perceptions of NDDs, perceptions of diagnosis, access to service provision and the impact on care settings. Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, autism spectrum disorder, dyslexia and dyspraxia were the more prominent conditions discussed. Even though these children are embedded in service provision, the findings raise important questions for both health and social care policy. There is a pressing need for research from a nationwide context to further explore areas of prevalence, training, resources, access to relevant specialist support services and the impacts on the already vulnerable LAC with an NDD.
