The stress and anxiety leading up to adoption can feel overwhelming, and the transition to parenthood can be sudden and jarring.

We will review relevant research on post adoption depression, and discuss strategies for prevention and treatment. This webinar is appropriate for those experiencing post adoption depression, as well as those who are simply looking for more information on prevention and support.
