Who am I like? How can I figure out who I am if I don’t know where I came from? Not only do adoptees need to consolidate their identity by seeing how they are similar to and different from parents who raised them, but they must also consider how they are similar to and different from their birth family and how this contributes to their self-concept. As parents, supporting our adopted children in their identity development may seem daunting. Through this workshop we will discuss: The developmental stages of an adopted child Identity development in adopted children The seven lifelong issues of adoption How to support your child in their identity development and ways to stay a part of the conversation as your child explores what various aspects of their selves mean to them   This event is open to those who have adopted as well as those in the process or interested in adoption.
