Anxiety and Depression in Adopted Children
Studies show that the rate of anxiety and depression in adopted kids is more than double that of the general population.
Depression, while usually associated with lethargy in adults, often looks like anger in kids. Anxiety typically sounds fearful in adults, but looks more like avoidance, annoyance or off the wall behavior in children.
Specific topics will include:
- The incidence of depression and anxiety in our adopted or foster care kids.
- The role of early trauma and how it can play out over time.
- What depression and or anxiety looks like at different ages and stages.
- How understanding our own feelings and reactions as parents can aid in empathizing with our children and help all of us interact more effectively.
- How to help kids develop more coping tools.
- When to consider professional help.
