Transracial Parenting: Ages 12-18 explores the unique experiences of transracial foster/adoptive families and examines developmental stages of racial identity development in youth ages twelve to eighteen. The training provides strategies on how to handle situations brought about by racism and views within society on transracial families.

After completing this training, participants will be able to:

  • Discuss racial and self-identity development in youth ages 12-18 years old.
  • Utilize strategies to discuss racism with maturing children.

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.
