Event description

Description

We are very pleased to welcome Lynda Graham, a counsellor specialising in adoption issues , to Scotland - http://www.lyndagrahamcounselling.co.uk/adoption-issues/

Settling into parenthood, or the post adoption period, can present its own difficulties for parents! Often these issues are not talked about or acknowledged and the emphasis is on the child and their well-being but what about the new parents? Sometimes admitting that there is a problem is too difficult or you are afraid to tell your social worker or anyone else that you are struggling?

This workshop allows the opportunity to focus on ‘the parents’ and what it means to welcome a new child into their family. Not everyone will suffer from post adoption depression – some will have the blues for a few days. During this workshop we will open up this topic and talk about the impact of having a child placed. We will focus on the issue of Post Adoption Stress and Depression and will be of benefit to parents, prospective parents and social workers. During the session we will:

  • Gain an understanding of what Post Adoption Depression is
  • Look at the emotional impact of having a child placed for adoption
  • Explore the range of feelings and emotions associated with PAD
  • Identify the symptoms and understand them
  • Identify ways to seek help and advice in the early days of placement
  • Focus on help and support for adoptive parents

There will be an opportunity to talk about what this subject means to adoptive parents and social workers and to gain from the presenter’s research into post adoption depression/blues. We will look at the factors contributing to post adoption depression and some case studies. You will be provided with a check list for future reference!


Please join Adoption UK Scotland and Lynda to learn more about how to protect yourself as a parent.
