65. Craig S. Hyman: "Inside Out: The Expressive Arts Adoption Healing Seminar"

Craig S. Hyman honors a lifelong calling to service in the areas of adoption education, healing & growth.  

Craig has been in reunion with all members of his biological families since 1987. As an adopted person, he has experienced the depth of separation trauma from blood relatives, as well as the transformative, healing process of the mind, body, and spirit.

Craig is the creator and facilitator of Inside Out: The Expressive Arts Adoption Healing Seminar, which helps to identify deep wounds, challenges, and uses creative expression to foster healing.  He is also founder and facilitator of numerous post-reunion support and “growth” groups in NYC & Los Angeles as well as an all-male adoptee global virtual support group for twelve years. Craig is an Adoption Life Coach for: adoptees, biological parents, foster parents, adoptive parents, their families and significant others; and he specializes in the areas of general adoptions issues, search, reunion and post-reunion complexities.

Craig lists B.J. Lifton as a close friend and life-long mentor especially in his immediate post-reunion years, up until her passing. 

Craig resides in Los Angeles, California and currently facilitates a monthly support group in Los Angeles for all members of the adoption constellation. Craig also coaches and educates globally.
