Time 11:00 AM to 1:45 PM

Those impacted by adoption – children or adults, parents or adoptees – face variables uncommon to the general population. Treatment professionals can unintentionally increase the intensity of the situation if unfamiliar with the factors inherent to adoption and the situations that precipitate a need for a child to be adopted. Too often I have heard from adoptive parents ‘we went to a therapist and they made it worse’ or adoptees saying ‘I cannot find a therapist that gets it.’ Research and therapist self-report demonstrate how poorly we are prepared to address the issues related to adoption.

In design and practice, Brainspotting is healing and affirming for adoptees. The flexibility, dual attunement frame, option for silent processing, and principles of uncertainty and staying in the tail of the comet make Brainspotting the preferred power therapy for working with both adoptees and birth parents.

In this beginning level presentation, we will discuss what you need to know about adoption, how to approach working with adoptees and adoptive families, the emotional issues inherent to adoption, best practices when working with adoption, and identifying when to make a referral and to whom. We will also discuss a variety of ways that you can increase your knowledge base and ethically work with adoptees and adoptive families, including trainings, conferences, and books. Most importantly we will discuss a variety of factors to consider when setting the Brainspotting frame with adoption clients and how to choose between the Brainspotting techniques.

This workshop will cover:

  • Early parental separation creates developmental trauma
  • Therapists are not taught about adoption
  • Therapists are likely already working with adoption due to higher prevalence in other populations
  • Brainspotting approach is essential for the adoption population
  • Adoption competency information & multidimensional frame setting

Participants will be able to:

  1. List foundational principles of Brainspotting that apply to the adoption population
  2. Identify special populations where adoptees are over-represented
  3. List the goals of Adoption Therapy
