a) what makes adoption mental health unique

b) clinical decisions in specific case examples

c) what modalities to use and when.

Our dialogue will highlight how to navigate relational expectations through developmental stages; address grief and loss that both child and adult face in forming family; work with differences in class, culture, race, and mismatch of expectations; build emotional safety; move through attachment rupture and repair; and finally when and how to “talk about” adoption and identity as youth claim their own while remaining loyal to many. 

Learning Objectives:

  • Participants will be able to identify unique/specialized aspects, clinical themes of adoption focused therapy and how to work with these
  • Participants will understand the reasoning behind use of various therapeutic modalities
