7 Core Issues of Adoption - Lincoln

Wednesday, June 27, 2018
6:00 pm8:00 pm
Nebraska Children's Home Society 4700 Valley Rd. Lincoln, NE

Whether children are adopted as infants or when they are older, whether they are healthy or have physical or psychological problems, their adoption is bound to influence their development. Adoption is a life long journey for all members of the adoption circle and the 7 Core Issues of Adoption, developed in the 1980’s, works to create a better understanding of the life long issues all members of the adoption circle experience.

Right Turn staff will present the 7 Core Issues of Adoption and assist participants in gaining personal and applicable understanding of the 7 Core Issues - loss, rejection, guilt and shame, grief, identity, intimacy, and mastery/control as well as how these issues change throughout the life long journey of adoption.

*Please feel free to bring your lunch.

This training is provided at no cost for Right Turn eligible families and $10 for non-eligbile families and professionals. Read more about eligibility.
