Publications and Media interviews

Over the past 15 years, I’ve presented sessions at a number of conferences, conducted workshops and written for several online or print platforms that no longer exist. As a professor, one of my great privileges is access to many academic journals that are expensive and inaccessible to anyone who does not have a university or college library access.

One of my frustrations is when adoptees are the subject of studies but don’t get to know what’s been written up about them. On this page, I will provide drafts of keynote speeches, articles that no longer are available due to the dissolution of the original journal or publisher, and copies of some of the presentations of my research that I’ve conducted.

For an overview of some of my peer review publications and book chapters, you can click on this link.
