Expert Q&A Webinar: Parenting After Older Child Adoption
Parents who adopt a child beyond infancy, whether from the U.S. foster system or internationally, may have concerns about the transition (which may be measured in years, not months) -- ranging from sleep to school to attachment to sibling relationships to assessing development to talking about the child's past. Join older-child adoption expert Regina M. Kupecky, LSW, to ask any questions you have during Adoptive Families' Adoption Expert Q&A Webinar: Parenting After Older Child Adoption on March 12, 2013 from 1PM to 2PM EDT. Submit questions in advance by posting a comment below.
Regina M. Kupecky, LSW, has been working with adoptive families and children for more than 30 years, and is currently a therapist at the Attachment and Bonding Center (ABC) of Ohio. She is a co-author of Parenting the Hurt Child, Adopting the Hurt Child, and a therapeutic workbook A Foster-Adoption Story. She also co-authored The Mystery of the Multiple Mothers, a mystery novel with an adoption theme, with her brother.
