All adoptions are transcultural, given that every family has its own unique culture. However, for children who are adopted into families of a different racial or ethnic background, the losses are compounded. The impact of these losses is often seen as youth enter their teens and young adulthood, forming identities separate from their families. In this session, participants will learn about the importance of and strategies for ensuring that children and youth have every opportunity to grow up secure in their connection to their community of origin, and with insights about forming healthy identities for themselves.

At this time, CEs are not available for this course. However, you will receive a training certificate upon completion of the course.
