Adoption therapists play a pivotal role in supporting children and families involved in the adoption process. These specialised mental health professionals are trained to address the unique challenges and emotions that often accompany adoption, offering guidance and therapeutic assistance to those navigating the complexities of adoptive relationships.
How Does an Adoption Therapist Help?
One of the many roles of a specialist adoption therapist is to help children and young people who have been adopted, and their adoptive parents cope with the emotional and psychological aspects of the adoption process. Adoptees may grapple with a number of challenges and a range of emotions related to their adoption. Children and young people who are adopted may also have experienced significant trauma pre-adoption which can be supported through an adoption therapist.
For adoptive parents, the process of adoption can be stressful and pose a number of challenges. Adoption therapists can provide guidance on attachment-building and help parents understand the needs of the adopted child, promoting a healthy platform for open communication within the family.
