Diversity is a major theme of adoption and foster care given the demographics of the children needing families and the ever-changing composition of families. Issues of belonging, identity and differences affect children and parents alike. Families vary in structure, composition, racial makeup and dynamics. Clinical practice and therapeutic strategies must be tailored to families in a manner that respect their unique composition and culture. This course presents a framework for individualizing practice with relative and kinship placements. Participants learn about the ever changing family, including gay, lesbian, single parent, and transracial families, and the dynamics that shape the family’s experiences.
6.0 Clinical hours.Pre-registration deadline is 4/3/15.
