Presented by Hollee A. McGinnis, MSW, Ph.D., Assistant Professor
Adoptee-led groups, especially groups started by adult international and transracially adoptees, have burgeoned since the 1990s in the United States, with virtual groups and social media spaces growing over the past decade. Some of these adoptee organizations developed the first formal mentorship programs for adopted youth. while others formed international networks. This workshop will provide a brief overview of the history of adoptee-led groups and spaces, and provide preliminary findings from the national study, Mapping the life course of Adoption Project (MAP), to discuss the importance of adoptees’ connections with others who share the same lived experience on well-being.
