International Adoption Training: Medical Issues, Behavior Management and Identity

  • Spence-Chapin 410 East 92nd Street New York, NY, 10128 United States (map)

THIS TRAINING WILL EXPLORE MULTIPLE FACETS OF INTERNATIONAL ADOPTIVE PARENTING.

We will begin the day with a workshop presented by Dr. Paul Lee and Dr. George Rogu, medical specialists in international adoption and founders of adoptiondoctors.com. From 9:00 AM - 10:30 AM Drs. Lee and Rogu will present on common medical needs for internationally adopted children and will discuss follow-up care once your child is home. Then we will explore discipline and behavior management practices for children who have experienced pre-adoption traumas. Finally we will conclude the day with a workshop on transracial parenting and discussion of the crucial role that parents play in helping their children develop a healthy identity that incorporates all aspects of who they are.

This FREE training is open both to pre-adopt families who are seeking to adopt a child internationally and to families who are already parenting a child adopted internationally.
