BUSSINGER, Rebeca Valadão; NASCIMENTO, Danielly Bart do  and  ROSA, Edinete Maria. The Work of Social Workers and Psychologists in the Adoption Processes. Pesqui. prát. psicossociais [online]. 2021, vol.16, n.3, pp. 1-17. ISSN 1809-8908.

This article aimed to know the work of the technical teams of the districts that carry out the process of habilitation for adoption in the State of Espírito Santo - Brazil. 37 technicians participated, including 22 social workers and 15 psychologists. Data collection took place through a semi-structured questionnaire, applied within the Varas, with questions about: training and professional practice of the team, difficulties and successful initiatives, adoption by homosexuals and the accompaniment of families in the period of coexistence. For data analysis, we used content analysis. The results point out the need to expand the teams; The precariousness of infrastructure; The difficulty in dealing with the myths about adoption and the importance of networking. It is concluded that the success of the work of the technicians is in the successful adoption - to which there was no return - more than in the amount of adoptions made.

Keywords : Adoption; Psychology; Social Work.
