Dr. Bianchi has been practicing in Morristown since 1995.  She maintains a practice treating adults, children, and families, with a special focus on infancy and early childhood.  An interest in attachment theory and chronic developmental trauma has led her to serve adoptees and adoptive and foster families. 

This presentation is intended to be an introductory overview of common presenting issues in cases involving adoption.  There will be an introduction to the influence of the type of adoption on both the child and family, emotional themes and forms of family narratives about adoption, and finally, considerations in the adoptee’s search for identity. 

Learning Objectives:  By the end of the session, participants will be able to:
1. List 3 factors that influence the adoption process
2. Describe 3 possible family narratives re: adoption
3. Explain how the search for identity in adoptees manifests itself, especially in transracial adoptions and other examples of intersecting identity

This program is intended for psychologists, psychiatrists, social workers, nurses, mental health counselors, marriage and family therapists, and graduate students. It will be presented at an intermediate level, meant for those with some prior knowledge of the subject matter. The presenter does not have any commercial support and/ or conflict of interest for this program.
