Hosted by Amy Silverman LMSW, this discussion will focus on celebrating Culture and Navigating Difference. Our children come to us with unique backgrounds, stories, and identities. How do we celebrate the cultures of our children’s births? How do we honor their history and the lived experiences of their birth parents? And how do we acknowledge the differences among family members, without creating distance? Please join us to grapple with these questions and support one another as parents.
All parents whose children are enrolled in community programming are invited to join in the conversation. This evening will run as an open discussion so that everyone has an opportunity to learn from each other’s experiences, while hearing from the clinical perspective.
