Experiences children and families have before, during, and after adoption impact how they approach treatment. Professionals who want to maximize their effectiveness with adoptive families need to have an understanding of the complexity of the adoption experience for children and families. This course will discuss the impact of the adoption process on children and families, common and lifelong issues that all adoptees and adoptive families face, and the trauma experience that adopted children and their families share. Trauma symptoms and the impact of trauma on the development of adopted children will be the focus as well as trauma-informed treatment strategies. In a case-driven experience, you will complete a trauma assessment and design trauma-informed interventions based on an adoptive family case study designed to present the unique needs and trauma issues that are common to adoptive families.
