Understanding Your Adopted Tween or Teen- Webinar Only
Thursday, December 8, 2016 from 6:00 PM to 8:00 PM (CST)
About the Training- This is an Online Webinar Only.
The developing teenager is guided by the neurons in their brain, which may or may not have been affected by early life traumas (e.g. neglect, abuse, abandonment, separation, body memories, etc.). We will explore profiles of tweens/teens who were adopted at various stages in their life. We will identify emotional triggers, challenging behaviors and complex emotions that tweens/teens may experience while exploring their identity and their roles within the family, school and community.
