The Intersection of Adoption and Teenhood: Strategies and Insights

  • 24 Mar 2019
  • 1:00 PM - 4:00 PM
  • Christ and Holy Trinity Church, 75 Church Lane, Westport, Ct.

Katie Naftzger, LICSW, will lead attendees through the teen years with wisdom born of her extensive research, her years as a therapist for adopted teens and their families, and her own lived experience as a person who was adopted from Korea.  It's a powerful combination!  The result is that she is able to provide insights and suggestions that are not only well informed but also very useful in a practical day to day way.  She is the author of Parenting in the Eye of the Storm: The Adoptive Parents Guide to Navigating the Teen Years.

Attendees will learn strategies for 'unrescuing" adopted teens, setting adoption-sensitive limits, having connected conversations, and helping teens envision their future.

  • Cost:   $30 per person, $55 per couple in advance
  • Contact: Susan Baron, LCSW and Risa Werner, LCSW 203-667-2370
