New Placements: Preparing & Adjusting Family Roles

September 7, 2022 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm EDT

New Placements: Preparing & Adjusting Family Roles will help foster and adoptive parents introduce new placements into their existing family units. It gives ideas and strategies on how to prepare children and family already in the home to best welcome a new foster or adoptive child. It also describes challenges children already in the home (biological, foster, adoptive, step, etc.) may be confronted with when a new child is introduced into the nuclear family.

After completing this training, participants will be able to:

  • Prepare their family to welcome a new foster or adoptive placement into their existing family structure.
  • Utilize strategies to address and overcome perceived challenges felt by children already in their home as well as new placements to make the transition smoother.

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.
