This webinar is centered on emotional and developmental needs of teenagers in foster care or who have been adopted. We’ll discuss how the expression of these needs are shown through their behavior and when and why the issues are most likely to occur. In this webinar, parents will build on knowledge they already have to learn how to “assign themselves jobs” that address their children’s specific needs and behaviors.
