Positive Adoption Language: Part 2 will discuss the power and impact of words and terminology related to adoption and foster care. The training will provide strategies to help parents reword common terms and misconceptions into positive language that is unique to foster care and adoption, such as attachment and bonding, identity and self-esteem, and maintaining the overall health of the family unit.
After completing this training, participants will be able to:
- Articulate positive language when interacting with a child who has trouble with attachment and bonding.
- Utilize strategies to improve the overall health of their families including self-esteem and identity of the children in their home.
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.
