In-Service Training: CHOSEN FAMILIES- ADOPTION PREPARATION

  • Braden River Library 4915 53rd Avenue East Bradenton, FL, 34203 United States (map)

CHOSEN FAMILIES- ADOPTION PREPARATION 4:00 - 5:30 p.m.

Children who are going to be adopted have often suffered from past traumas.  The adoptive families often are not prepared for the emotionally charged feelings and behaviors that these children are exhibiting.  We have learned that children who have suffered trauma often operate from a place of fear and because of that exhibit certain behaviors to protect themselves.  This presentation will include information about:

                -“Chosen Families’ and the services they offer

                -how their parenting educators can help

                -children who are suffering from trauma

                -insights into how best to help these children
