LGBT+ Adoptive Parents Required

In-Trust has been contacted by a researcher, Pedro Alexandre Costa, at Birkbeck, University of London who is doing a study about adoption in the UK and Portugal.

The study is being carried out in collaboration with Dr Fiona Tasker, who is a leading expert in LGBT+ parented families: www.bbk.ac.uk/psychology/our-staff/fiona-tasker.

They are particularly interested in hearing from LGBT+ parents who have adopted a child as they are, to date, underrepresented in the study.

The study is about child and adolescent well-being in adoptive families, with the main purpose of evaluating how adoption, child’s pre-adoptive history, and family dynamics can best promote child and adolescent development and well-being.
