About the event
Please contact Anna Loebe at <firstname.lastname@example.org> to enroll for this live in-person class.
Remember the movie “The Wizard of Oz”? Like Dorothy, who was abruptly transported from her home by a tornado, children separated from mothers and birth family will experience disorientation, fear, and trepidation as they find their footing in a new environment. Beyond losing birth parents and familiar surroundings, they have left behind family celebrations, as well.
Anna Y. Loebe, Ed. D., an adoptive parent of two sons, has worked in the child welfare arena supporting children and families, specializing in adoptive, foster care, and kinship families since 2006. Between 1976 and 2005, she worked as an educator in various teaching, administrative, and university research capacities. She is currently a family support specialist at Children’s Advocacy Center of Southern Arizona.
This presentation reflects her views supported by child trauma and adoptive parenting research.
Please enroll no later than end of Monday, March 21, 2022.
