I have had the privilege of working with Isaac Etter on several projects, and I can attest to his passion for supporting and nurturing the healthy identity of foster and adoptive children. Isaac is an adult transracial adoptee who founded Identity, a learning collaborative that aims to empower families to create safe and supportive environments for their adopted children.
Isaac has recently asked me to author an e-book on trauma-informed parenting for the Identity learning collaborative, and I couldn't be more excited to partner with him again. This e-book will provide practical guidance to families who want to understand and respond to the unique needs of their adopted children who have experienced trauma.
Trauma-informed parenting is an approach that recognizes the impact of adverse experiences on a child's physical, emotional, and psychological well-being. It encourages parents to prioritize safety, trust, and connection, and to develop a deep understanding of their child's trauma history, triggers, and coping strategies.
Through this e-book, we hope to offer families practical tools and strategies to support their children's healing and growth. We believe that every child deserves to feel safe, loved, and supported, and we are committed to helping families create the best possible environment for their children to thrive.
We are currently finalizing the e-book, and we will share more information about its publication date soon. In the meantime, we invite you to check out the other resources that the Identity learning collaborative has already published. They offer a wealth of information and support for families who are navigating the complex world of adoption and foster care.
Thank you for your interest in our work, and we look forward to sharing more with you soon.
