Content By: Farr, R. H., and Vázquez, C. P. (2020). Stigma experiences, mental health, perceived parenting competence, and parent–child relationships among lesbian, gay, and heterosexual adoptive parents in the united states. University of Kentucky: Lexington, Kentucky, Frontiers in Psychology 11(445): https://www.frontiersin.org/articles/10.3389/fpsyg.2020.00445/full

Course Description: Adoptive parents often face stigma related to “non-traditional” family structures. Lesbian and gay (LG) adoptive parents face additional stigmatization based on sexual identity. Researchers found that both adoptive and LG parent families experience stigma, but family processes were more strongly associated with individual outcomes than family structure for LG families. Identity-affirming practices that can decrease stigma and support adoptive family functioning and well-being are at the forefront of future research considerations.     

Learning Objectives: 

  1. Articulate the similarities and differences between family systems theory and family stress theory
  2. Integrate the information related to perceived parental competence and parental mental health across adoptive family experiences
  3. Identify the ways that adoptive families may be affected by stigma and discrimination
  4. Consider the statistical findings and practical implications pertaining to the overall study results

Course Outline:

  • Read Stigma Experiences, Mental Health, Perceived Parenting Competence, and Parent-Child Relationships Among Lesbian, Gay, and Heterosexual Adoptive Parents in the United States
  • Review the Course Description and Learning Objectives
  • Understand the interconnectedness between family system theory and family stress theory
