Upcoming Training: Talking Transitions

179032577Many children and adults find it challenging to deal with life changes. A person who was adopted may also experience these challenges, but to a greater degree due to their past, unknown history, or anxiety related to separation.

Permanency can be an ambiguous concept to people who have been adopted, so when a transition is around the corner, regardless of whether it’s minor or major, it can be a difficult time to process emotions. Please join us to learn how to identify triggers in children, what steps can be taken to reduce the anxiety, and how to smoothly transition children into new situations like school, new adults, new friends, new neighborhoods, new situations, etc.
