"Dialogues on..." Child and Adolescent Psychoanalysis
Attachment and Autonomy: How Parents Can Help Their Adoptive Children Thrive
Wednesday, June 14, 2017
Presenter: Anna Balas, M.D.
Sometimes parents feel challenged as they need to shift gears with their children from favoring strong bonds of attachment at a younger age, to allowing them the emergence of a separate identity and sense of autonomy in adolescence. We will explore these themes with parents with adopted children where these themes are often lived out more intensely. We will discuss how to help such families thrive.
