Working with Loss and Trauma Related to Past and Forced Adoption Practices


A Two Day training program for Health and Welfare Professionals

Facilitator: Dr. Sue Green

Separation from a child or from family through adoption has lifelong consequences which have frequently been ignored or dismissed by professionals in the past. Individuals may come with a broad range of presenting difficulties, including depression and anxiety that may be related to adoption or separation from a child.

State and Federal Apologies have now acknowledged the significant grief and trauma experienced by mothers, fathers, adopted individuals and their extended families as a result of past and forced adoption practices.
