Transracial Parenting: Ages 5-12

August 26, 2022 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm EDT

Transracial Parenting: Ages 5-12 explores the unique experiences of transracial families and examines developmental stages of racial identity development in elementary and middle school-aged children. It offers strategies to create an environment that is conducive to the formation of a positive identity, as well as strategies to help children develop coping skills and methods of maintaining a positive identity.

After completing this training, participants will be able to:

  • Examine children’s racial identity development (ages five to twelve years old).
  • Articulate positive self-esteem and coping strategies for transracially-placed 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.


If you have any questions about this training or how to register, please email ask@uky.edu or call 859-257-7361.
