The first year home is
a critical period for parents and their internationally
adopted child. The first year home offers first opportunity
for the parent-child relationship to flower and for trust
Through case studies you
will learn how to nurture a child who resists nurturing.
Some resist obviously and forecefully; others resist in
subtle, even silent ways. Examples include children adopted
in infancy and toddlerhood as well as those adopted from
five to ten years of age. Each case study provides you with
the parenting tools you need to make your first year home
If you are beyond the first
year home, don't despair. This course will provide you with
insights and strategies to turn things around when your
child has difficulties.
This course is like no other information about
internationally adopted children: it tells you not only
how to understand your child's behavior, it shows you how
to correct it.
The class contains examples that extend the
text of the book "Parenting Your Internationally Adopted
Child", written by the author of this course.
