In the recent webinar “Strengthening Families Impacted by Foster Care and Adoption,” hosted by the Young Professionals Council (YPC) of the Field Center for Children’s Policy, Practice & Research, a panel of foster care and adoption experts discuss how child welfare professionals can more effectively work with foster and adoptive families and help parents raise children who thrive. The hour-long webinar addresses topics such as kinship care, LGBTQ+ (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer or questioning, or other gender or sexual identity) families, transracial parenting, and more.
