Adoption Therapy Webinars

Every therapist truly desires to be competent and helpful for all of their clients. Unfortunately, most clinicians were never provided even a basic introduction to adoption, let alone an explanation or analysis of the complexities adoption entails. Sixty-five percent of clinical psychologists surveyed were unable to recall any courses addressing adoption in graduate school, which is better than the eighty-six percent who could not recall any courses addressing adoption in their undergraduate coursework either (Javier, et al., 2006). Because adoptees are overrepresented in a variety of populations, including but not limited to competitive athletics, addictions, eating disorders, LGBTQ+, and incarceration, it is likely that you are working with adoptees whether you know it or not. 

Too often, I have heard an adoptive parent say we went to a therapist, but it only seemed to make it worse. Adoptees seem to be more gentle in their assessment that it just didn’t help or the counselor didn’t get it. Because I know therapists really want to practice excellence and offer quality services, I am bringing together experts in the field of Adoption Therapy for easy access information on a variety of topics that impact adoptees, birth and biological parents, adoptive parents, and those in the child welfare system.

Mag. Monika Baumann

Monika Baumann is first and foremost a person with a lot of energy and a big heart, but also: a Clinical & Health Psychologist, Systemic Family Therapist registered with the Austrian Federal Ministry, registered child and youth psychotherapist, and an International Brainspotting Senior Trainer/Supervisor and Head of Brainspotting Austria

"Transforming burdens - whether recent or from the past - in people's everyday lives into a positive part of their life story, that is my professional mission!"

Her background is in neuro- learning psychology and this wealth of experience is an important basis for her work today. Monika first came into contact with Brainspotting during her work in a social project. Convinced of the method and its effectiveness, she specialized more and more in Brainspotting with emotional stress and trauma.

She works with every age group. To date, Monika's youngest Brainspotting client was a six-week-old baby and her oldest was over 80 years old. Brainspotting is suitable both as a short-term intervention (2-5 sessions) and integrated into long, ongoing therapy. She has had countless positive experiences with both.

Monika loves working with children and adolescents, and it was her who - together with her colleague from the USA, Martha S. Jacobi - conceived the training Brainspotting with Children and Adolescents. In 2020 she compiled her knowledge in a book ("Brainspotting with Children and Adolescents: An attuned treatment approach for effective brain-body healing").

Adoption Therapy Webinars Frequently Asked Questions:

Why is it $25 USD?

My goal is to increase the adoption information known by as many therapists as possible because what I know from adoptees and adoptive families is that experience and good intentions isn't enough when working with the adoption constellation. I want this information to be easily accessible for professionals, both online and in price point.

It is also important to me that professionals are compensated for their time, labor, and expertise. Half of all income from any Adoption Therapy webinar, whether live or recorded, is paid to the expert.
