Providing Postadoption Services

Source: Child Welfare Information Gateway

This bulletin summarizes key issues related to providing effective postadoption services by drawing from available literature and practice knowledge. Quality postadoption services are important because of the effects that separation, loss, and trauma can have on adopted children and youth, adoptive families, and birth families. The bulletin discusses several types of postadoption services that are available to each of these groups, describes how each type could be of benefit, and explores the characteristics critical to the success of the services. It also includes an explanation of key steps in the development and implementation of a postadoption program that can help strengthen the development process and overcome barriers to service use.
