CE Event: Kinship Adoption

Kinship Adoption featuring Rebecca Gallese, LCSW

This webinar will explore the unique issues and life style changes that kinship caregivers experience as a temporary stay of a child turns in to a permanent placement. Participants will identify the specific family dynamics and challenges when working with kinship families and how this differs from traditional foster care. Participants will gain awareness of how their own assumptions and biases impact practice and expand cultural competencies to engage and intervene more effectively with kinship families. Through use of group activities, videos and case examples, participants will explore clinical issues such as loss, loyalty and boundaries and build on interventions and techniques that will be useful when working with kinship families.
