FOR NORTHERN VIRGINIA FAMILIES: NPAC Live Series – Raising Traumatized Adopted Children

January 18, 2023 | 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm


Register Today

Please join Dr. David Brodzinsky to discuss trauma and its impacts on children in our January NPAC Live event. We will discuss the need for preparation and post-placement support, the role of violated expectations that creates stress in adoptive parents, and the need to identify adoption-competent therapists to ensure success of a placement. Please come prepared with questions! We look forward to seeing you there!
