July 14, 2022 | 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm


Register Today

Are you an Adoptive or Foster Family living in California?

Register now for the Communicative Openness Parent Support Group! This 6-week webinar/parent support group will cover how adoptive parents can communicate with their children (through age 12) to help them understand and process their adoption story.

Participants will learn:

  1. How children understand adoption at different developmental stages.
  2. How this knowledge provides parents with a guide for when, how and what to share at different ages, including information that parents may perceive as difficult, negative, or painful.
  3. How to engage birth family members in this process within open adoptions.
  4. Children’s understanding and experience of how other people in their lives perceive adoption.

Practical advice is offered to help parents anticipate their children’s questions and concerns and learn effective, appropriate ways of responding. Content can be tailored to specific audience needs, such as focusing on a particular age group, depending on the make-up of the workshop. Parents will also be provided support in learning how to manage their own thoughts, feelings, and reactions to their child’s adoption story and questions in order to best prepare them to feel successful in communicating with their child.

Communicative Openness Parent Support Group will meet via Zoom on Thursday (July 14th, July 21st, July 28th, August 4th, August 11th, August 18th) from 6:00 pm – 7:30 pm PST. The group series starts with a webinar on communicative openness followed by 5 parent support group sessions that dive deeper into issues around communicative openness.
