Presented by Gregory Keck of the Attachment and Bonding Center of Ohio and Robert Ballard of the University of Waterloo, Ontario at the 37th NACAC Conference in Denver, Colorado. This workshop will examine identity formation for adoptees and their families. In addition to discussing identity formation in general, the presenters will explore the unique features of adoptee identity development. They will also cover how adoptee identity may be affected by the separation and individuation process in adolescence, how families influence and are influenced by these issues, and the difficulties some adoptees experience due to their having multiple identities.
