Online – Preserving Cultural Connections for Transracial and Transcultural Adoptions
May 26 @ 11:30 am - 1:00 pm| Free
Culture connects us to people who share our values, beliefs, and ideas. Intertwining a child’s culture and racial identity into their home is an essential step to creating a sense of belonging and a positive self-image. When children are able to see parts of themselves in their surroundings they can begin to feel like they belong.
The training will focus on understanding the impact of race and culture as a tool to ensuring children feel a sense of belonging, challenges parents may have in understanding culture and incorporating a child’s culture into their home, and developing strategies to assist parents in overcoming these challenges.
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 contact you 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.
