If you adopted your child transracially, what does she experience growing up? How should you be talking about race and racism, birth culture, and differences in your family to instill a positive racial identity? How should you discuss teasing he may face at school, as well as societal attitudes and events in the news to help your child navigate a world that is far from colorblind, now and as an adult?
In this webinar, social worker and adult adoptee Deborah H. Johnson will discuss transracial parenting from a professional and personal perspective. Join us for this presentation and a chance to ask your questions.
The Expert Q&A Webinar with Deborah H. Johnson: "Growing Up as a Transracial Adoptee: What Parents Need to Know" will take place on Thursday, May 19, 2016 from 1pm to 2pm ET (12pm-1pm CT; 11am-12pm MT; 10am-11am PT).
Deborah H. Johnson is a Minneapolis-based social worker with more than 25 years of experience working with adoptive families. She is the founder of Kindred Journeys International, a heritage travel company and a longtime columnist for Adoptive Families magazine. She was adopted from South Korea.
