Embracing Your Family

(Pre-Adoptive), 3.5 hours

The Embracing Your Family Pre-Adoptive Seminar focuses on the integration of a new child into your family. We discuss the relationship between trauma, attachment and brain development, and provide techniques for enhancing bonding and attachment between parent and child. Substantial time and discussion is devoted to the subject of race and adoption. Other topics include: prenatal substance exposure, empathy for birth parents, and preparing for the adjustment to parenting. All trainings are from 10:30 am – 2:00 pm and cost $150.00 unless otherwise stated.
