Talking with Children about Race – a Developmental Approach June 08, 2022
A practical, developmentally grounded discussion for both parents and professionals working to support foster and adoptive parents who are parenting children of color. In this webinar, we will help you learn how to talk with children of color about their personal adoption stories, adoptism, racism and racial pride in the context of the white supremacy that permeates their world and ours. We will explore how to introduce and expand conversations in a manner reflective of developmental stages. Participants will be presented with examples of how families, educators and scholars think and strategize for balancing race-based pride with discussing the realities of oppression. This webinar is for all members of the adoption constellation and adoption professionals.
