A Clinical View of Adoption Trauma

Most adopted and foster children have been exposed to some form of trauma. The very act of being adopted or put in foster care can be traumatic for children, because it means the loss of their birth family. Join me and my guest, Sean Delehant,Program Director of the Prince George's County Office of CASE ( The Center for Adoption Support and Education) and Adoption-Competent Therapist. In my chat with Sean we take a deep dive into trauma from the clinical perspective. We discuss it's affects not only on the adopted child but the entire family and support network. Sean explains trauma, what signs to look for in our kids, and provides some strategies we can take to benefit our children when they are suffering. This could be one of my most important, interviews yet. A most for anyone who loves a foster or adopted child.
