Timeline photosUnseen Struggles: The Urgent Need for Counselling Access for Adult Adoptees.

Join us on Wednesday 8th February for our next Thought Leadership Event and learn about the struggles of adult adoptees in accessing trauma- and adoption-informed therapeutic support in the UK.

Many adoptees and even professionals are unaware of the lifelong impact of adoption trauma on mental health and access to counselling is severely limited, with only 7 registered adoption competent therapists between Birmingham and Scotland.

Join us and hear from Vik Fielder and Dawn Maclean from the Adult Adoptee Movement (AAM) and learn about their efforts to improve the current situation for adult adoptees. Joining them will be author, speaker and adoptee advocate, Zara Phillips and adoptive mother and dedicated OLLIE volunteer, Debbie Joy Doherty.

This event is open to everyone and may be of particular interest to counsellors, clinicians, GP's teachers, social workers, adoptees, adoptive parents, birth families, policymakers and anyone working with adult adoptees.

Register now at www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/526465210617
