their loved ones) on all four realms of our human existence: physical,
mental, emotional, and, especially, spiritual. There are joys and
challenges. It is the challenges or obstacles that few people
ever look at, along the journey for those affected by adoption.
In Canada, there are few-to-none who have specialized training in
post-adoption issues within the mental health field.

Dyadic Developmental Psychotherapy (developed by Daniel Hughes, Ph.D.) is now available in Saskatchewan!!! DDP is an integrative method of psychotherapy that was developed in the 1990s for the treatment of children and youth who manifested serious psychological problems associated with intrafamilial trauma and serious failure to establish stable attachment patterns. Most of the clients receiving this treatment were residing in foster homes, adoptive homes, or—at times—residential treatment centers. CLC: A Path to Healing now offers this method of psychotherapy relative to those children and families with attachment issues and behavioral difficulties (resulting from neglect, abuse, etc).
