Risk & Protective Factors for Discontinuity in Public Adoption and Guardianship
The Quality Improvement Center for Adoption and Guardianship Support and Preservation (QIC-AG) is pleased to release a literature review, Risk & Protective Factors for Discontinuity in Public Adoption and Guardianship.
The National Quality Improvement Center for Adoption & Guardianship Support and Preservation (QIC-AG) is a national project designed to promote permanence when reunification is no longer a goal, and to improve adoption and guardianship stability, preservation, and support. The QIC-AG is working with eight states over 5 years to implement and test interventions to achieve long-term stable permanence in adoptive and guardianship homes.
To understand existing information on discontinuity in adoption, the QIC-AG at the University of Texas at Austin completed a literature review to provide information to its partnering sites and the general public. The purpose of this literature review was to understand the risk factors that lead to post-permanency instability, also termed discontinuity, in adoption and guardianship to guide current and future interventions for families formed by adoption and guardianship.
In addition to the literature review, they are releasing a more comprehensive list of citations that are relevant to the QIC-AG target populations, Literature Related to Adoption and Guardianship, Permanence, and Well-Being. Both products are also available on their website: http://qic-ag.org/litreview/
