Perceptions Of Adoption: A Child’s Developmental View

June 8, 2023 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm EDT

Perceptions of Adoption: A Child’s Developmental View will discuss the ways a child’s cognitive development skills and emotions develop, and how that impact his or her perceptions regarding adoption. This training provides information on how these perceptions change at each major developmental stage, along with how foster and adoptive parents can help children work through any issues that might arise.

After completing this training, participants will be able to:

  • Identify and articulate how children’s perceptions of adoptions change with each major developmental milestone.
  • Utilize strategies to identify common triggers or life events that may cause issues with a child’s understanding of adoption and help their child work through them.

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.
