Online – Brothers and Sisters in Adoption: Welcoming a New Sibling
May 19 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm| Free
When your family is formed through adoption, what does that look like for your established children? Have you come across issues related to balancing sibling rivalry and the emotional needs of those children already in your home? Do your adopted children have birth siblings that they may or may not see on a regular basis but remain important to them? Developing a sense of family cohesion takes time. Adoptive parents will need to work to make sure that the needs of all children in the family are being met. A good adoption home study evaluates the impact of the adoption on all family members and will help to prepare siblings for the addition of new family members. Not adequately addressing the conflict between adoptive siblings can be a contributing factor to increased parenting stress and even placement disruption. These challenges and other points of interest will be addressed in this training. You will discover an understanding of how family dynamics transform and find tools on how to handle these difficult situations.
Due to recent recommendations by the CDC to limit public gathering, this training will take place via webinar using Zoom Web Conferencing. Once registered, the trainer will be in contact with specific instructions on how to access the training.
Trainings will be live with the trainer available to answer questions or address any concerns that may come up. If you have any further questions, please contact the Education and Training Coordinator, Stacy Varouh at firstname.lastname@example.org or 402.889.8366.
