As children grow, families who have maintained birth family connections often need guidance as they chart this unique journey. Former C.A.S.E. Adoption-Competent Therapists Ellen Singer, LCSW-C and Madeleine Krebs, LCSW-C will address common questions regarding decisions around contact, setting appropriate boundaries, handling differences between birth and adoptive parents’ values and lifestyle choices, as well as the evolution/challenges of changes in relationships over time. Presenters will also discuss how parents can help their children with issues related to grief and loss that are still part of the open adoption experience.
