Video Resources for Professionals

A Suite of Video & Recommended Resources for Teachers, Doctors and Mental Health Professionals


This project was developed to provide better education of key professionals who intersect in the lives of adoptees. We hope this will support professionals to understand adoptees and hear their voices to give them an in-depth knowledge of their experiences which will identify and provide much-needed post-adoption support. 


This professional development education series was developed in collaboration with Relationship Matters and InterCountry Adoptee Voices (ICAV).
