Adoption in the Age of Facebook, Twitter, and the Internet

Or log in to access your purchased courses

Facebook, social media and the Internet are significantly affecting how people adopt and the relationships within adoptive families. Should you friend your child’s birth mother or birth father? Should you prohibit your child from contacting their birth family via internet social networks? How can parents best navigate social media interactions before and after adoption?  This course is a good discussion with Dr. Martha Henry, a developmental psychologist and the Director of the Office of Foster Care and Adoption Education and Policy; and Adam Pertman, Executive Director of the Evan B. Donaldson Adoption Institute, and author of Adoption Nation.
