The University of Maryland (UMD) Department of Family Sciences and
The Center for Adoption Support and Education (CASA) are working together to facilitate a national study of transracial adoptive families.
The study will address questions such as:
• How can I help my teen cope with cope with racial discrimination?
• What is the most effective way to parent a teen that is a different race than me?
• When it comes to my minority race child's self-concept, does living in a diverse community make a difference?
Families whose children are ages 14-18 years old and who are interested in participating can call 301-405-4011 to find out how to complete the 20 minute confidential survey along with their child.
