Adoption is the legal process that involves transferring the care of a child from biological parents to adoptive parents. Partners or individuals may choose adoption to raise children for various reasons. Similarly, an adopted person might go through phases when they wonder why their biological parents put them up for adoption. They also might experience confusion regarding the presence or absence of their biological parents in their life.
Available Treatment Options
Therapy for those involved in the adoption process aims to address emotions surrounding the experience. Therapists using therapeutic interventions may include a detailed look at the person’s past and how adoption affected them. Children who have been in the foster care system or were adopted may benefit from Play and Art therapies, which give them a creative outlet to express emotions.
