Making the Transition from Foster Care to Adoption

There are many factors to consider when making the transition from fostering to adoption, for both the parents and the child. This can be a particularly vulnerable and difficult time for children as they come to realize that they are not returning to their birth family.

This webinar will explore the importance of permanency for children. It will also address the normative emotional reactions of both the child and the foster family to the lifetime commitment of adoption.

Participants will gain techniques for talking with social workers and children about adoption in a positive and open minded manner. Participants will leave with a toolbox of new techniques for understanding and finding permanency for the children in their home. This webinar is brought to you through the generosity of ERP International, who are deeply about finding safe, permanent homes for all children.
