Theresa Shell-Goldsby, Adoptive Parent Trainer
Openly Talking with Children About Adoption equips adoptive parents with the skills necessary to talk honestly and positively with children about their adoption experiences. Participants will explore how to begin the conversation with their adopted child at various developmental stages. This training also addresses some of the common fears and misconceptions surrounding openly and honestly discussing adoption with their children.
After completing this training, participants will be able to:
- Understand their own feelings regarding a child’s adoption before discussing it with their children.
- Discuss strategies to honestly and openly share a child’s adoption experience with that child.
ASK-VIP trainings are expressly designed to meet the needs of foster and adoptive parents. Skilled trainers who have lived experiences with fostering and adoption provide these trainings in a virtual group setting. There is 1.5 hours of ongoing, elective foster parent training credit available for Kentucky’s foster parents.
