Untangling Adoption and Adolescence - North Platte

Tuesday, August 7, 2018
6:00 pm8:00 pm
Mid Plains Community College / 1101 Halligan Dr. Room 202 / North Platte, NE 69101

with Christine Bowlby, LMHP, RPT

Adolescence is a critical age in which young people are trying to figure out who they are and where their life is headed. Adopted adolescents face these normal challenges with an added layer of complexity. The grief and loss inherent in adoption becomes clearly visible as the teenage brain grows and develops. This new understanding leads to new questions at a time when all adolescents are developing an identity. This training is geared at helping parents understand how normal adolescent development and adoption issues fit together and play out for adopted teens and their families. Participants will learn about the ‘Six Stuck Spots’ identified by the Center for Adoption Support and Education (C.A.S.E.) that are common for adopted teens and provide ideas as to how adoptive parents can support their adopted teens.
