Partnering for Permanency – Seattle
September 21 @ 9:00 am - 5:00 pm
This all-day workshop builds on the knowledge gained in CCT and offers a deeper exploration of topics at the core of successful fostering and adopting. We’ll cover how trauma presents in children and how caregivers can respond, how to create openness in your home and build relationships with a child’s family, and discuss considerations in preparing for transcultural/transracial caregiving. We believe that everyone enters the role of parenting with room to grow and we offer this workshop as a way to learn alongside fellow Amara families, encourage self-examination, think ahead about how you can strengthen your existing support network, and grow your skills in preparation for this unique path to parenting.
This is only open to families who are currently working with Amara. As an Amara family, you will be automatically registered by an Amara staff person at the appropriate time in your process.
