You may already know that I have another webinar series beginning on Tuesday, November 8.  “How to Talk About the Hard Truths in Adoption” will address WHY we should be talking to kids about adoption (even the really hard or bad parts), HOW to talk about those things, and WHAT on earth we should actually be saying.

If you follow me or my blog at ALL, you know that I’m firmly in the honest, authentic, and transparent camp when it comes to talking to kids about their past.  This is for a LOT of reasons- my relationship with many adult adoptees who have made it clear to me that this is THEIR story; my foundation in neuroscience and memory processing theory which tells me that ALL experiences are encoded, even if they can’t be recalled; and my love of attachment theory which is clear that one of the hallmarks of secure attachment is knowing your life story (researchers call this a cohesive life narrative).

But it’s SO HARD to talk about abuse, neglect, abandonment.  It’s hard because it hurts our hearts and we don’t know what to say.

Let me help you!!!

This is a two-part webinar. Part 1 is live on TUESDAY November 8, and Part 2 is live in December.  Yes, I know Tuesday is election day.  This can offer you a nice reprieve from the intensity of the evening OR you can just wait and watch the recording when I send it out a few days later.  You choose!

See you then!!!

    I’m an adult adoptee. let me know if you have any questions that I can help you with. This is a hard topic and as you know, you are bound to get pushback.

    Reach out!

    We hear so much about leaving the past behind from therapists. Now that our son is nearly 15, abandoned at age 4 1/2, his anger has intensified, though episodes are further apart. I believe his anger at his mother deeply affects the gravity of our situation. When he was younger he would talk to me about things he remembered. Now he seems to be emotionally separated from me more and more. I really look forward to this webinar. We literally have no attachment specialists that will see our son…NC
