Attachment Based Parenting Approaches in Adoption

ID: 5954WEB

Participants will identify symptoms of impaired attachment and discuss the emotional demands this has on adoptive parents and families. Through case examples and experiential activities, participants will learn strategies to assist parents to strengthen the parent-child relationship and implement parenting techniques that focus on attachment and building trust rather than ‘traditional’ parenting approaches. Mental health professionals will add to their clinical ‘tool box’ as they learn new techniques that will be effective for foster and adoptive families.[Required for Adoption Certificate Program]

Preparing Children for Adoption

ID: 5980WEB

Clinicians will also learn techniques to prepare children and families for transitions and necessary good byes; this may include leaving a foster home or group home, a good bye/closure visit with a birth family, or moving to a select home. Experiential activities will be integrated into the workshop to expand the clinician’s toolkit in working with families as they transition through adoption.
