Article Discussion: 12:20 - 1:30pm

Join us for an article discussion on the use of narratives to build attachment in children of adoption and/or out of home care, based on the book, Connecting with Kids Through Stories by Lacher, T. Nichols, M. Nichols, & May.

There are four types of narratives which can help create a cohesive story of acceptance and belonging for a child into the family. These narratives offer another tool by which parents and professionals can begin to integrate a child's story. Through this medium we can build the beautiful image created from the seemingly scattered pieces of the puzzle and enhance a child or adolescent's understanding and acceptance of his or her history and experiences. A brief article summary will be sent out ahead of time for review before the meeting. 

ALSO

Parent Support Meeting: 1:30-2:30pm

Immediately following our Monthly Discussion, we'll gather in two smaller groups to share experiences and ideas in a supportive environment. One group will focus on general parenting concerns while the other will discuss parenting children with attachment and behavioral issues. There is no extra fee for this portion of the meeting - just register for the Monthly Discussion; those who cannot stay for both meetings can just come for one or the other.

Parent Support Meeting is open to all parents and caregivers, including waiting/prospective parents.
