Spring 2014 Conference Presentation on Latin@ Adoptees

November 7, 2013 in News by flokoul

Stephanie Flores-Koulish and Susan Branco Alvarado were recently invited to present their research at the 2014 American Educational Research Association annual international meeting to be held in April in Philadelphia, PA.  Their paper is entitled, “Navigating Both/And: Exploring the Complex Needs of Latin@ Adoptees,” which is based on a framework developed by Flores-Koulish comparing and contrasting Latino/a adoptees (known in the work as “LADs”) with Latino/as in the New Latino/a Diaspora.  They ground this piece with composite cases of LADs as they have presented themselves to Branco Alvarado in her therapy practice.  The piece intends to provide implications for counselors and educators.
