FONSECA, Patrícia Nunes da et al. Stereotypes and intention to adopt: explanation based on human values. Arq. bras. psicol. [online]. 2019, vol.71, n.3, pp. 137-151. ISSN 1809-5267.

This work aims to check the predictive power of human values in explaining the stereotypes of the adopted child and the intention to adopt. 245 people participated, most of them male (59.2%), with an average age of 25.5 years (SD = 7.10). They answered the Stereotypes of the Adopted Child Scale, the Scale behavioral intention to adopt, the Basic Values Questionnaire and a sociodemographic questionnaire. The results were consistent with the theoretical model adopted. The normative and achievement values served as good predictors of the adopted child's stereotypes. In addition, the interactive and achievement values were able to predict the intention to adopt. It is concluded that human values constitute an important variable in the explanation of stereotypes and the intention to adopt, enabling the deconstruction of negative stereotypes and prejudices involving the adopted child, as well as encouraging the practice of adoption.
