This training helps participants understand the impact of parenting children from different racial/ethnic/cultural backgrounds and to know how to honor and incorporate child’s race/ethnicity/culture into their existing family system. Strategies are identified to help children develop positive and proud identities and to help children and families prepare for and handle racism in all forms. Openness to a child’s sexual orientation and gender identity and expression and viewing these differences from a strengths-based perspective is also highlighted.
This training is for Ampersand non-relative families who are going through the home study assessment process. Please consult with your permanency specialist before signing up.
