Talking to Friends and Family About Adoption

May 16 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm

Join the National Council for Adoption for an enlightening conversation on how to talk to your friends and family about adoption! We’ll provide valuable insights to help adoptive families navigate common questions from friends and family, address potential misconceptions, manage intrusive inquiries, and turn challenging moments into opportunities for education. This session is designed to empower those considering or currently navigating the adoption journey, with a particular focus on understanding, addressing, and involving friends and family in the conversation. We’ll also offer some tailored guidance for those adopting after experiencing infertility, offering practical advice on how to share the news with friends and family that you are embarking on a new path to parenthood.

While this webinar is geared primarily toward adoptive parents, it will offer important principles and helpful, practical applications that are relevant to adoption professionals as well.

This FREE live webinar, sponsored by ARC Fertility, will provide 1 CE credit for social workers licensed in the state of New York and 1 contact hour.

Registration is open until the webinar begins. To participate in this webinar, attendees must have the Zoom application downloaded to their device. For more information on this webinar and continuing education credits, please follow the links below.
