This year, the focus is on older youth adoption from foster care. Clearly, we never outgrow the need for family.
In this spirit, we are offering special discounts to help families either explore adopting an older child or better meet the needs of the child they are already parenting.
Adopting an older child presents a unique set of joy and challenges. From knowing what kind of information is important to have to anticipating potential stumbling blocks to a smooth transition, this course serves as a guide to anyone considering adopting a child older than an infant (whether internationally or from the US public welfare system).
Parenting Matters applies a strengths-based, therapeutic approach to parenting in order to heal a child who has had a tough start in life. Learn this deliberate and intentional approach to parenting through exercises, family stories and expert advice.
Adopted people and adoptive parents don’t always look at adoption the same way. Understanding your child’s feelings about adoption is essential, so how do you gain some insight?Our panel of adult adopted people discusses what they wish their parents had known.
**Please note that the discounted rate will only apply from November 1-30. You must purchase the course or webinar during the month of November in order to receive the discounted rate. However, you can take the course or webinar at any time as our they remain yours to view at your convenience.
