Samenvatting

This thesis is on institutional communication, and focuses in particular on
interactional processes between social workers and prospective adoptive parents in
assessment procedures for adoptive parenthood. These assessments are conducted in
the Netherlands by the Child Protection Board (hereafter CPB). In order to make
recommendations about the suitability of prospective adoptive parents, the CPB is
tasked with assessing ‘possible risk and protection factors that might hinder a stable
development of the adoptive child towards adulthood’ (CPB, 2001: 62). The
assessment procedure includes a health check, whether or not the candidates have a
criminal record, written life stories of the prospective adoptive parents and four
interviews conducted by a social worker from the CPB. The procedure concludes
with a formal record, including a recommendation, that is sent to the Dutch state
agency. This thesis concentrates on institutional assessments of adoptive parenthood
procedures through text and talk: on assessment in action. It includes an analysis of
the interviews related to the life stories of the prospective adoptive parents and the
reproduction of both in the recommendation record.
