An article by Dr. Susan Branco, assistant professor of counseling in the School of Education, was published in the Sept. 1 online edition of The Family Journal, which provides scholarship for counseling researchers, educators and practitioners.
Branco's peer-reviewed article, titled "Relational-Cultural Theory: A Supportive Framework for Transracial Adoptive Families," reviews the history of transracial adoption in the United States through the lens of colonization, describes research related to racism and its impact on transracially adopted children, and recommends relational–cultural theory as a supportive framework for school, mental health, and family counselors.
