As foster, and adoptive parents, we often need to have really tough conversations with the kids in our care. These discussions range from their birth family, abuse they have endured, racial, or sexual discrimination they have experienced, sexual acting out, and so much more. This training will provide practical tools to handle these tough conversations to better prepare you ahead of time.  This course is worth 3 hours.
