Grief in Foster & Adopted Children (and Families) Webinar

by Robyn Gobbel

DVD, 2020



This is a recording of an online ORPARC webinar presented by Robyn Gobbel, LCSW LMSW RPT-S.
Foster Care & Adoption always begins with loss. Grief is inherent, although when and how children experience, express, and process their grief varies substantially. When parents, professionals, therapists and other helpers honor the grief inherent in foster care & adoption and understand the complexities of their losses, we open ourselves up to being more fully present for children to process their grief.

This workshop will cover:
• the losses inherent in foster care and adoption
• grief related to adoption (including ambiguous loss)
• understanding why children grieve for abusive and neglectful families
• supporting children through big, confusing, and overwhelming feelings
• how to notice if our own feelings may be triggered & prevent us from being full present for children
