Abstract

Many actors play a role in adoption’s processes: children, adoptive parents, other relatives, friends, acquaintances and, on the institutional side, Court, social and health services, school. Social workers are usually aware of this complex network but, when some difficulty emerges, then the intervention is often focused only on the child, or just on the child and his/her adoptive parents. Furthermore, social workers have often a top-down approach, in which they think it is their duty to indicate what to do to solve the problem. In this paper, a different perspective is proposed, based on Relational Social Work. In order to illustrate it, four real cases are analyzed. Concepts of coping network, shared goals and facilitation are presented, showing how they can guide professional practices in adoption’s processes.
