To mark 40 years of BAAF/CoramBAAF, CoramBAAF's John Simmonds selects a series of seminal articles from Adoption & Fostering that illustrate some of the most significant themes that have arisen over the years, featuring some of the UK’s most knowledgeable scholars and practitioners working in child care practice and research.

Topics range from a critique of early child protection services, children’s right to be heard, the complexities of contact, the evidence surrounding transracial adoption and ‘racial matching’, and whether children’s services can ever succeed. Each is discussed in some detail in John Simmonds’s accompanying introduction: ‘“Turning 40”: a rapid review of experience, evidence, reflection, and the future’.

This title has been sent to CoramBAAF members free of charge. A limited number of copies are available to non-members for a nominal fee of just £2 to cover postage costs (full price shown at checkout). Please place your order below.
