Commissioned report— April 2021

This resource gives an overview of forced adoption and describes how the experience may affect an individual. It offers some reflections on how to work with clients with a forced adoption experience and provides links to further information and training. It does not address contemporary adoption practices and is not a substitute for undertaking recognised training in working with people with a forced adoption experience.
