Children who have been adopted can face a variety of difficulties including issues related to behaviors, emotions and core identity conflict. Often, the child or teen does not know why he or she thinks or acts in a particular way. Sometimes, the adults who placed the child into his or her new family don't know much of the history (for example pre-verbal trauma the then-infant experienced).
Therapy can be provided in a variety of modalities for children, parents, caregivers, and/or the unique family unit to address issues related to loss, grief, adjustment, anxiety, depression, behavioral concerns, trauma recovery, attachment / bonding and parenting.
Additional services may include classroom observation, collaboration with daycare staff or school teachers, and social skills development to facilitate the child/ren with social and emotional adjustment.
If you would like to know more about trauma-informed post-adoption counseling services, please call for a free consultation.
