ONLINE WORKSHOP: Managing Expectations by Creating A Family

March 27 @ 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm

For WI adoptive, foster, guardianship, and kinship families. Registration is required for this event.

An online educational workshop for guardianship and adoptive parents.

One of the biggest reasons placements fail is because of a mismatch between the parents’ expectations about fostering or adopting and the reality of it. This curriculum looks at how these unrealistic expectations can interfere with our ability to see and parent the child we actually have. We will take a quiz to determine our child’s actual age vs their physical age. Lastly, we will look at how parents can manage their expectations and what they can do to take care of themselves.

This is an interactive, live educational workshop run by Christy Timm, a Wisconsin Adoption and Permanency Support Specialist, with material from Creating A Family. Discussion and participation encouraged.

A certificate of attendance will be given to all participants shortly after the workshop.

*Please note: If you are looking to obtain a certificate of attendance for this, you must register. For example, if John and Jane Doe would like a certificate, they must register separately in order for both of them to receive a certificate.
