Developing Communication Skills is a research-based media program, which incorporates video and additional printable materials to help adoptive and foster parents develop skills for communicating with their children. Adoption has undergone dramatic changes in the past 30 years, due largely to the complexity of contemporary adoptive relationships, which increasingly involve international, multi-ethnic, multi-racial, and foster care placements.

Adoptive and foster youth experience consistently high rates of behavior problems and psychological maladjustments. These adoptive youth issues occur at a disproportionately higher rate than among non-adoptive youth. Parenting competence is the primary mediating factor in reversing this trend.
