Attachment – Preparing For a Baby Through Adoption, The Welcoming Process

Making a transition from one family to another makes attachment a sensitive issue throughout life. This workshop will describe a continuum of attachment issues and assist participants in understanding strategies that promote secure attachment for children from infancy through toddlerhood. Learn how to read your new baby’s cues and understand how where your child has come from impacts who they are with you, whether the placement is direct from the hospital, an orphanage or foster care. This class is appropriate for parents-to-be of children up to 2-years-old when they come home.

• What is Attachment?
• How You Can Smooth the Process of Attachment for Babies
• Handling Well-Meaning “Advice”
• Circle The Wagons To Promote Attachment
• Can You Spoil A Baby With Too Much Holding Or Attention?
• Developmental Milestones & Regression

Beth Hall is the white adoptive mother of a Latina daughter and an African American son (both now young adults), and grew up with an adopted sister. She co-founded Pact in 1991 to combat the discrimination she witnessed against adopted children of color and their birth families. Since that time, she has facilitated the placement of over 1000 infants of color into strong, loving homes. She is the co-author, with Gail Steinberg, of the book Inside Transracial Adoption, as well as numerous articles on adoption and race. She is a nationally known advocate for adopted children of color who regularly lectures and leads workshops on ethical, non-racist adoption practices. In 2010 she received the Outstanding Practitioner in Adoption Award from the Adoption Initiative at St. John's University.
