Lecture given Monday 1st July for the NHS Clinical Psychologist/Thinking Space

Monday morning, 1st of July I delivered the third “lecture” or talk on the subject of being a Transracial adoptee. Today’s was ““All you need is love..?”: What happens to cultural identity in transracial adoption? A personal perspective from a Hong Kong Chinese adoptee raised in a white British family. ” for the Clinical Psychologist/Thinking Space organising committee, Tavistock & Portman NHS Foundation Trust.

It never ceases to amaze me how interesting people find what I have to say. I guess when you live it, it can become somewhat “boring” whereas if you see it for the first time as an outsider looking in then quiet possibly it is interesting. What I speak about is certainly different. Because that’s what I am, a person of difference.

  1. Just received this feedback from the Tavistock Clinic

    “Lucy was invited to the Tavistock Clinic to talk about her experience of
    interracial adoption. She gave a compelling, very personal presentation
    which the group described as moving, enlightening, generous and thought-
    provoking. Lucy’s experience helped us think about the issues and
    challenges raised by interracial adoption and about the needs of interracial
    adoptees and their families.”
