The Center for Adoption Support and Education, the Congressional Coalition on Adoption Institute and the National Council for Adoption are jointly sponsoring this screening to increase the community's awareness of the complexity of moving children into adoptive families with histories of trauma, severed attachments and profound loss.
The film tells the story of Masha, an eleven year old Russian girl, learning to love her adoptive American family through an intervention protocol developed by Professor Emeritus Dr Robert Marvin. The Diaz family undertake Dr Marvin's program and Masha learns to love - for the very first time.
Please join Dr. Robert Marvin and film producer and director, Sarah McCarthy, in the discussion about our community's continued investment in accessible and effective post adoption services for families faced with these challenges.
