Psychological Adjustment in Adopted Children

Predictors of Psychological Adjustment in Adopted Children

 

The Study

A recent study has focused on the factors that predict psychological adjustment in children who were placed for adoption before they were 1.5 years old. The researchers aimed to find out what affected adopted children’s internalizing (sadness, withdrawal) and externalizing symptoms (acting out, defiance).
