This interactive webinar will include recommendations from families parenting Black children for adoption professionals. Specifics approaches will be discussed to strengthen skills around cultural competence in our work with adoptive and pre-adoptive families - particularly those who are adopting transracially - with an emphasis on Black children. Themes include: how to talk about race, unconscious and implicit bias, and white privilege within the context of raising Black children. Arizona-based Culture Coach, Akili Worthy, will share feedback from the families she serves and specific approaches to improve the competence of the adoption workforce around race and cultural issue. 

Note: AEA will be offering continuing education credits through NASW to all attendees who need them. Please note that this webinar is free for AEA members but costs $25.00 for non-members.
