Sempre più frequentemente si viene a contatto con situazioni cliniche riconducibili a problematiche psicologiche conseguenti al processo adottivo, sia per quanto riguarda la coppia genitoriale sia i soggetti adottati. Per questo motivo ci si è posti l’obiettivo di analizzare l’intero iter adottivo. L’applicazione, ad oggi, di un intervento sulla situazione antecedente presenta una serie di difficoltà. Si è cercato di capire dunque se fosse possibile rintracciare i fattori di rischio e di vulnerabilità insiti in questo percorso al fine di stilare un protocollo utile alla risoluzione dei problemi che si slatentizzano nel momento immediatamente postumo all’adozione. Il focus del presente lavoro è sul CUIDA, un questionario ampiamente utilizzato nella pratica clinica in Spagna, in materia di adozioni, affido e accoglienza dei minori, per la valutazione della coppia genitoriale richiedente. L’idea è di affiancare al questionario precedentemente citato, un’intervista semi-strutturata, creata ad hoc. Il fine è quello di definire, nelle fasi di assessment, i fattori di vulnerabilità della coppia richiedente e del soggetto adottato, in modo da avere un obiettivo terapeutico immediato e condiviso che sia supportato da uno strumento validato e affiancato da un’indagine specifica effettuata tramite l’intervista.


Keywords: Adozione, fattori di rischio, fattori di vulnerabilità, CUIDA, intervista semi-strutturata.
