Free Webinar on Youth Perspectives of LGBT-Headed Foster and Adoptive Families


LGBT-Headed Foster and Adoptive Families: Youth Perspectives

3:00 - 4:30 p.m. EST • Thursday, June 21, 2012 Register

This webinar, co-presented by AdoptUSKids and the National Resource Center for Permanency and Family Connections, will highlight new research findings about the perspectives and experiences of youth who have been adopted from the foster care system by parents who are lesbian, gay, bisexual, or transgender (LGBT). Presenters will share new resources to help child welfare professionals apply research findings to their practice, especially in relation to communicating openly with children, youth, and their birth families, when the children or youth may join an LGBT-headed family or already have been placed with LGBT parents. The webinar will also provide new resources for LGBT resource parents. The webinar will close with a question and answer period. Register for the webinar
