Joy Lieberthal

Joy Lieberthal received her B.S. from Union College and her Masters in Social Work from Columbia University. She has been working in the field of adoption for the 20 years professionally and through various volunteer organizations. She was a Policy Analyst for the Evan B. Donaldson Adoption Institute where she co-authored the Report on the First Gathering of Adult Korean Adoptees in Washington, DC and has also been published by Child Welfare League of America in their Adoption and Ethics series. She also worked for Adoptive Families Magazine. Joy was a social worker in international placement for Spence-Chapin Services in NYC, but ultimately worked in their post-adoption department for six years. During that time Joy worked as a counselor for children and parents, presented at workshops related to issues around being adopted, facilitated Spence-Chapin's Kids Groups, ran Teen Forums and helped to create a youth Mentorship program for domestic and international adoptees. She has created curricula for agencies and professionals on a wide variety of topics — such as preparing for birthcountry visits, an overview of clinical issues in adoption — as they relate to helping families and children around adoption issues. Joy has spoken in local and national forums, in particular, at the Joint Council on International Children Services, Adoptive Parents Committee, Families with Children from China and the North American Council on Adoptable Children and the St. John's Adoption Initiative. Joy has worked with local private elementary schools in educating educators about growing up adopted. Joy is currently in private practice and is continuing her work with adoptive families and adopted persons. She also works on the counseling team at the Juilliard School for undergraduate and graduate students.
