Attachment and Autonomy: How Parents Can Help Their Adoptive Children Thrive with Anna Balas, M.D., June 14, 2017, 8:00 – 9:30 pm, New York Psychoanalytic Society & Institute 247 East 82nd Street, NYC, Register Today
Sometimes parents feel challenged as they need to shift gears with their children from favoring strong bonds of attachment at a younger age, to allowing them the emergence of a separate identity and sense of autonomy in adolescence. We will explore these themes with parents with adopted children where these themes are often lived out more intensely. We will discuss how to help such families thrive.
Anna Balas, M.D. is a child, adolescent and adult board certified psychiatrist and psychoanalyst in private practice on the Upper East Side of Manhattan. She is on the faculty at New York Psychoanalytic Society & Institute and Associate Professor on the Voluntary Faculty at The Payne Whitney Division of the New York Presbyterian Hospital and the Weill Cornell School of Medicine.
