GOMES, Isabel Cristina  and  LEVY, Lidia. The preparation of children and adolescents for adoption: the psychology student's place. Est. Inter. Psicol. [online]. 2019, vol.10, n.3, suppl.1, pp.157-176. ISSN 2236-6407.

This article aims to reflect on the participation of the psychology student included in a supervised internship program, in the preparation of children, adolescents and group of siblings for insertion into an adoptive family. It is presented some intervention proposals aimed at preparing both in the scope of national and international adoption based on the review of the literature. Through clinical reports and a psychoanalytic approach, it is discussed the importance of an interdisciplinary dialogue between the academy, the judiciary and the home institutions aimed at consolidating the bonds between children or adolescents and adopters. We also emphasize the therapist trainee's (student) place and the limits of his/her performance constituting a valuable experience for his/her personal and professional development, as well as the construction of knowledge for the area.

Keywords : psychologist's professional training; adoption; psychoanalysis.
