Therapy Issues Among the Adopted - Video

Adoptees may face issues related to their adoption experience. Michael Forman of Boston Evening Therapy Associates in Brookline, MA discusses issues faced by adoptees, such as problems in moving on with their lives. Adoption can have a "subtle by pervasive" impact on adoptee's lives; growing up with no knowledge of their birth parents can have a profound impact. Adoptees can overcome these feelings by developing a strong sense of self and a life narrative that makes sense to them, and therapy can help them do so.
