FOSTER & ADOPTIVE RESOURCES
I am an adoptive mother and have extensive training in adoption-competency and trauma. Because of that, I am intimate with the challenges specific to foster care and adoption. I am here to support the individual and community, and am also able to facilitate education and support groups for resource parents or resource workers that can provide a great deal of value. Topics discussed in these groups include grief and loss, behavior management techniques, working with birth parents, conflict resolution with children, the importance of siblings, child safety, substance abuse and child development, and coping skills. Groups can be done as one-time or occur on a regular cadence and can include as many or as few people as desired.
