Post Adoption: What we know and what we need to know to strengthen families and children
At the Provincetown Inn
Provincetown, Cape Cod, MA
Dr. Joyce Maguire Pavao and Collesgues.
This year's ARC Summer Intensives aims to take a look at the aspects of adoption that involve the awareness of transitions, trust, trauma and the truth for the better education of professionals, as well as parents (by birth, adoption, A.R.T, kinship, and adult adopted people).
As ever, ARC will use narratives, digital stories, performance and movies, as well as keynotes and panels, to discuss the many emotional and psychological elements that can make adoption a challenge and a joy for all involved. We will explore how the hard work of people who have been pioneers and change agents has made a difference for all of the larger Family of Adoption.
These ARC trainings are called "The Intensives" because we work and think very hard about what is needed in families associated with adoption and other complex blended families.
They are intense but in a gentle setting!

ARC was founded in 1973. The ARC Summer Intensives, which began in 1985, are based on Dr.Joyce Maguire Pavao’s Normative Crises in the Development of the Adoptive Family framework, her years of clinical experience, and her consulting and training expertise. The Intensives utilize family systems theory, which is the basis of Dr. Pavao’s work.
Cambridge-based AACT and PCC was begun in March of 2012 but the programs have existed and ARC has been around since 1973. PCC has a New York presence as well. PCC and AACT provides training, education, advocacy, and counseling for individuals and families touched by adoption, foster care, kinship care, guardianship, and all other forms of complex blended families.
