Working with Biological Parents

FamilyForward's St. Louis County Site 11358 Van Cleve Ave, Saint Louis

For many resource families, the prospect of working with a child’s birth family can be intimidating. This class is designed to examine the benefits and realities of working with birth families and to provide tools and ideas to help bridge the gap. The intergenerational nature of trauma, along with special considerations in dealing with kin relationships, will be discussed. Setting boundaries in continued relationships with the birth family, both prior to and following adoption, will also be examined. To register, call 314.968.2350 ext. 7234 or email
