Description

Same Family, Different Stories: Parenting Siblings by Birth/Adoption and/or With Unique Adoption Experiences explores how parents often need to weave different adoption stories into one family, and sibling relationships can be challenged by these differences.  One child may have more contact with his/her birth family than a sibling, children may perceive their stories as “better” or “worse” than a sibling’s story, and feelings about adoption may vary among siblings. This training is designed to explore strategies for handling these differences as children grow and change. It also addresses sibling and family issues for families formed by birth, foster care, and/or adoption.    

After completing this training, participants will: 

  • better understand challenges present in adoptive families with both adopted and birth siblings.  ​
  • learn the ways adoption stories are seen by different members of the adoptive family.  ​
  • learn strategies for handling sibling and family issues of families formed by birth and by birth and adoption.  ​
