Join Joint Council for a guided discussion on the impact adoption has on identity formation. A panel of adult adoptees will share personal stories from their childhood and teenage years, reflecting back on how adoption factored into their identity formation. Lead by Dr. Gina Samuels, a researcher, educator and adopted person, the panel will give adopted parents practical insight into how they can best support their children to form a healthy sense of self.
- Learn the challenges your children may face when forming their identity
- Hear stories and examples of how others have faced these challenges
- Pose your own questions to the panel
