Adoption competence for eating disordered professionals
Adopted people frequently present with disordered eating habits. Learn how to support clients who have experienced family separation trauma. This course will breakdown how the ambiguous loss of adoption, the lived experiences of adopted people and the secrecy sometimes associated with adoption are contributing risk factors for clients who present with disordered eating.
Gain insights and practical applications for ED clients who may also be from adoptive families.

What Course Attendees say
It is possible - it's NECESSARY - to find a way to straddle the “both and” in adoption. To be honest with what's not good, awful, and even deadly without collapsing into shame or blame.
Katy doesn't shy away from inviting attendees to look at the uncomfortably hard- both in themselves and adoption as an institution.
