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

A One or Two-Day Training Program for Health and Welfare Professionals

Presenter: 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.

VANISH members and service users tell us there is demand for trained and skilled professionals in this sector. VANISH has delivered this training program across Victoria and has received excellent feedback.

Day One: Supporting individuals experiencing separation and loss through past and forced adoption practices.

Day Two: Counselling individuals experiencing separation and loss through past adoption practices.
