Adolescenti adottati e relazioni familiari e sociali

Translated title of the contribution: [Autom. eng. transl.] Adopted teenagers and family and social relationships

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


[Autom. eng. transl.] Adopted adolescents constitute a group with their own peculiarities: they are Italians to all effects, included in our social fabric (school, work, etc.), but they were born in distant places and at a more or less early age they had to leave their land for to be introduced into a new family and into a new country with a very different ethnic and cultural background. Certainly our socio-cultural context sees an increasingly numerous presence of people belonging to different ethnic groups, but this does not necessarily constitute an element of facilitation for the insertion of adopted children: indeed, it is often a confusing element, as they often they are labeled as "immigrants" and report being subject to discrimination. So the question of ethnic identity is really relevant. In this work we wanted to deepen this aspect and we tried to answer some questions such as: adopted adolescents how they live belonging to their own ethnic group? What does it mean in their lives? How are they seen by others? Are they victims of discrimination? What is the point of view of parents and what do they do concretely to convey the culture of the country of origin?
