The Language of Adoption

ID: 5987

Learning to speak a new language is a skill that takes time and practice. When working with families formed by adoption, the words we use make a difference. Utilizing the principles of Object Relations Theory, this workshop is designed to provide effective strategies for practitioners who work with anyone touched by adoption. Participants will gain an understanding of adoption centered language and will demonstrate through small group activity and role play their enhanced ability to effectively connect with those involved in the adoption constellation. Additional topics covered will include the use of accurate terms, assisting adoptive families with navigating relationships with birth families and techniques on how to craft developmentally appropriate discussions with children about adoption and birth stories.
