Description: Knowledge & training in trauma & attachment approaches are important when working with adoptive families, but these approaches often lack crucial components specific to the lived experiences of adoptees. In this webinar, Dr. Chaitra Wirta-Leiker – a psychologist, adoptee & adoptive parent – will describe five key concepts mental health professionals who work with adoptees should understand, including the “6 F’s of Trauma Reactions,” the “7 Core Struggles,” “Ghost Lives,” “Narrative Burden,” and “Between-World Identities.”
Presenter: Dr. Chaitra Wirta-Leiker is a licensed psychologist specializing in pre- through post-adoption work at her private practice in Denver, Colorado. She practices from a unique “trifecta perspective” as a mental health professional, adult international/transracial adoptee & adoptive parent, combining all three perspectives into a comprehensive approach that supports all members of the adoption constellation. Dr. Wirta-Leiker is a national speaker on adoption-related topics & provides pre-adoptive parent evaluations & parenting preparation, individual & family counseling, play therapy & EMDR.
