Helping Foster & Adoptive Children Cope With Holiday Stress

December 4, 2022 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm CST

Helping Foster & Adopted Children Cope with Holiday Stress is designed to assist foster and adoptive parents in learning and understanding how stressful holidays can be for foster/adopted children. It also describes in detail practical ideas for lowering the stress and confusion levels for those children.

After completing this training, participants will be able to:

  • Recognize why holidays may trigger stress and confusion for foster/adopted children and why each child may react differently.
  • Identify and utilize practical ways through which stress and confusion during the holiday season can be reduced for foster/adopted 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.

Create an account or log-in to register for this training. A reliable internet connection and a smartphone, tablet, or computer with web camera is needed to participate. If there are two adults in the same household that want to participate in this training, each person must register separately. Foster parent training credit is administered based on the duration of the meeting and each attendee’s participation. Training credit is only available if you have not participated in this training within the past twelve months.
