Online – The Importance of Maintaining Birth Family Connections
August 13 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm| Free
Maintaining connections with your child’s previous and important relationships is often challenging and complex. Years of research and adopted persons themselves tell us that this is imperative to healthy adoptee identity development. This training will explore the complex dynamics that often accompany the relationship between adoptive and birth parents as well as the continuum of openness. Participants will also gain an understanding of the importance of maintaining other important connections such as extended biological family, siblings, and previous foster parents. Participants will learn useful techniques to assist adoptive parents and birth parents in creating and maintaining a relationship that is based on the best interest and well‐being of the child.
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.
