Varieties of Adoptive Experience
Presented by Paul Brinich, PhD

This lecture and discussion focuses upon some of the ways in which "adoption" makes an appearance in clinical practice. On the one hand, I argue that there is no such thing as an adopted child; on the other hand that adoption highlights some of the ambivalences common to all human relationships. Participants who are able to view Mike Leigh's 1996 film, "Secrets and Lies" prior to the talk will be sensitized to and prepared for some of the issues included in my presentation.
