Adoption and Addiction: Remembered Not Recalled

Paul Sunderland is an addiction counselor with over 25 years of experience. His video "Adoption and Addiction: Remembered Not Recalled" touches on relinquishment and adoption issues that are very informative for mental health professionals and adoption triad members as it is important to understand what adopted individuals have been through

The video describes the experiences of babies missing their first mother, the impact on the baby’s brain chemistry and the long-term effects experienced by adoptees as adults. Mr. Sunderland goes on to speak about relinquishment trauma which is a developmental trauma that is experienced by individuals due to a separation from their first mother.*

A more in depth description by Marie Dolfi, LCSW about this video can be found on her website.
