Adoption Matters - Traumatized Parenting

Parenting Children Who Have Experienced Trauma with Karen Moore, MA, ECE, RSW.

During this one-hour minute webinar, Karen provides an introduction to trauma and its impact on child and adult development, using an adoption-specific lens. Whether you are a prospective adoptive parents, an adoptive and permanency planning caregiver, or a professional, you will learn why it is critically important to learn as much as you can about this important topic, regardless of the child’s age at placement.

Goal: To raise awareness about the impact of trauma on child development and adult development, and the corresponding needs of infants and children who join their families by adoption and permanency planning.

Objectives: By the end of this webcast, participants will be able to do the following:

  • Explain the meaning of “trauma” and what it means from an adoption or permanency planning perspective
  • Describe at least three symptoms or long-term emotional “reactions” that may be indicative of a trauma history
  • Identify the impact of trauma on child and adult development
  • Explain the correlation between loss and trauma
  • Provide examples of trauma experienced by waiting children and children who have joined their families by adoption
  • Identify examples of knowledge and skills needed by adoptive and permanency planning parents to successfully parent a child by adoption and permanency planning
  • Explain how “relationship-based parenting” and “therapeutic parenting” contribute to healing for a child with a history of trauma
  • List resources that can be accessed to heighten one’s understanding about trauma and adoption
  • Discuss the importance of being well-informed about the topic, parenting children with a history of trauma, pre and/or post-placement
