Free text In this presentation, the author discusses identity problems faced by Korean adoptees in the USA. A number of variable elements were taken into consideration in this study, including: parent's support of the child's ethnic background; parent-child relationship; collective self-esteem or ethnic pride; personal self-esteem and psychological adjustment or satisfaction with life. In presenting the data that emerged, the author, while admitting to limitations to the study, provides conclusions that point to the importance of preparation and support to adoptive parents so that they can become more aware of the effects of the adoption on their children's psychological development, particularly in respect to the cultural and ethnic elements present in this kind of adoption.
