Presentation on Stress for Adoptive Parents

Let’s Talk About Stress: Trauma, Stress, and Caregiver Resilience

Presented by Post Adoption Support Services

Thursday, November 4, from 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm via Zoom

Join Kate Murray, PhD, and adoptive parent Mary Kate Humphrey for a 90-minute session focusing on trauma, stress, and caregiver resilience. While a 90-minute session won’t miraculously dissolve the stress from your life, you will walk away with practical strategies and tips that don’t add too much time to an already busy schedule.

This presentation, developed by secondary traumatic stress experts at the University of Kentucky, will:

  • Give you an opportunity to talk with other adoptive parents about your experiences
  • Help you create a concrete plan for managing your parenting stress, so you feel more in control and more connection to your child
  • Help you pinpoint your sources of stress, including your child’s special needs and history of trauma
  • Explore why empathy is so essential, but so hard to maintain when stress is high

Adoptive parents who register and attend will receive a $10 gift card to Amazon (see flyer for eligibility requirements).
