With a focus on the lifelong aspects of adoption, this annual training seminar celebrates, promotes and explores issues related to adoption. This weekend event provides information on some of the most important issues and concerns in adoption today. The primary focus of this training seminar is on supporting and strengthening adoptive families. Through this event, adoptive parents and foster to adopt parents currently with children placed for adoption are provided an excellent opportunity to increase their knowledge and skills concerning adoption issues, services for adoptive families and the parenting of adopted children. More than 20 workshops will be offered on topics such as understanding developmental assessments, parenting children with complex medical issues, coping with attachment-related issues, guidance and behavioral concerns, identifying emotional triggers, special educational services, supporting children through developmental stages, and much more.
The Ties That Bind Training Seminar is truly a family centered event with all ages welcome. In addition to childcare, age-appropriate workshops and fun-filled activities will be provided for all children. There will also be a Teen Leadership Program that will provide teen participants with exciting opportunities for personal growth. Teens will be learning valuable life skills that will focus on making positive choices, overcoming obstacles, developing critical thinking, reducing violence, and setting goals. These programs enable parents to enjoy the seminar secure in the knowledge that their children are nearby, having a good time themselves.
