Feedback on the Expert Voices in Adoption Series

Dr. Chaitra Wirta-Leiker kicked off the Expert Voices In Adoption Webinar Series with a day-long conference in November 2021 that featured a full line-up of adoptee-clinicians. Read the incredible feedback attendees had to share about the presentations below!

“I thought the conference one of the best I've attended re adoption.”

"All of the sessions were excellent! The presenters had so much knowledge to share and I feel very grateful to have learned from each of them. I particularly liked the talk on eating disorders and the morning session on the question of searching. Lots to think about and process ...”

“The presenters were very knowledgeable and so were the panelists. I learned a lot and I hope to watch again to go over what I missed! Personally as an adoptee, these panelists and clinicians are people I would consider mentors and trailblazers as they motivate me to reach my goal of also becoming an adoptee clinician but also giving me the reality of what it is like to be a clinician but also an adoptee.”

“All presentations were very clear, concise, and packed full of important information. The spectrum of topics covered was well-planned. I feel much better informed and have a renewed empathy for adoptees and adoption professionals.”

“They were all wonderful and very helpful information. I learned a great deal. Thank you!”
