Adoption Matters: The Lifelong Impact for Children and Families - Omaha
with Christine Bowlby, LMHP, RPT
Adoption is a life long journey that affects adopted persons understanding of their world. It is important for families to explore how adoption impacts children and young people throughout their lives. From life events such as “family tree” day at school to the birth of their first child, adopted persons have a unique perspective. Additionally, adoption impacts all members of the adoption kinship network – including biological parents and adoptive parents. This training will explore Silverstein and Roszia’s 7 Core Issues of Adoption and common issues adopted persons and their families face throughout their life. Parents will also receive tools for walking through and supporting their children through the life cycle of adoption.
