In an adoption world where disruption looms all too often, this session offers a positive approach for workers and families. Here is a way to make sense of (and deal with) some of the negative feelings that adopted children can make their parents feel. Understanding this dynamic, as well as other key parent-child interactions which are unique to adopted children and their new families, can help turn a crisis in an adoptive family into an opportunity for true communication and strengthened commitment.
Presented by Maris Blechner, an adoptive and birth parent and a nationally known trainer and consultant on child welfare issues. Maris has a particular interest in helping older children move into permanent committed adoptive families. 2013.
