1st part of a two-part article, authored by ACI’s Richard Pearlman, LCSW, is published in the March issue of Adoption Today magazine.
For more than a two decades Richard has been thinking about the paradigms that govern how people think about and practice adoption. Along with Jane Turner, ACI’s executive director, Richard has been developing a new paradigm for understanding adoption that moves the practice of adoption beyond “openness.” In this article Richard looks at the history of adoption and how paradigms come into being. Part 2 of this article is coming out in the April issue of Adoption Today.
