Grief, Loss, & Other Adoption Conversations Training

Chinese Children Adoption International

Apr 07, 2017 Colorado
Education
Show event description and sign up to attend

Grief and Loss is inherent in adoption. It is a joyous event and a wonderful way to build a family. However, we want to acknowledge the loss all members of the adoption “triad” experience in adoption. Adoption is lifelong and unites birth families (and birth countries), adoptees, and adoptive families forever. It is important to get “comfortable” “talking” about this loss with our children so we will spend some time thinking, talking and getting ready for these very important conversations that our children will have over the years!

It is important to just get talking! We will talk about some of those interesting questions our families, children, friends and strangers will have for us about adoption! We need to talk about adoption from the beginning and add to the details as our children grow and have more questions! We want to be proud of who we are and celebrate our children’s entire story - past, present and future. We want to give our children one of the greatest gifts we can offer – their life story!

Attachment Training

Chinese Children Adoption International

Education
Show event description and sign up to attend

Do we need to be experts in attachment to adopt? No! But we can be well-prepared to help establish a healthy bond with our adopted child and prevent attachment problems by understanding the attachment process and what to do when we are starting that process with an older infant, toddler, or older child. The class covers the basics of attachment theory, what attachment disorders are, and how to promote a healthy attachment with your child. We will also talk about the initial “adjustment period” for your child and your family and the potential issues that can arise and how to cope with them.
