Oke, Meera, Groza, Victor, Park, Hyeshin, Kalyanvala, Roxana and Shetty, Maina (2015) The perceptions of young adult adoptees in India on their emotional well-being. Adoption & Fostering, 39 (4). pp. 343-355. ISSN 1740-469XFull text not available from this repository.
This article presents the findings of a study of 46 adults adopted at very young ages in India and now aged between 20 and 30 years. The results suggest that the majority of respondents were physically healthy and well adjusted. However, 40% scored below the norm for social functioning, suggesting some underlying issues associated with poor well-being in their current phase of life. The mental health issues affecting the young people were associated more with anxiety and stress than depression. However, none of the variables investigated proved to be strong predictors of mental health difficulties. The results are discussed in the context of Indian culture and psychosocial development during early adulthood and include implications for practice.
