Modern Families: Fostering Resilience and Inclusivity While Welcoming and Affirming All Families webinar at FCPS

November 3, 2022 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm EDT

Fairfax County Public Schools is hosting a webinar, presented by FFF staff.

Welcoming nontraditional families into authentic partnerships takes effort and can reap great rewards. Nontraditional families include those with parents, caregivers, or youth who identify as LGBTQ+, as well as those formed through foster care, adoption, and kinship care by grandparents, other relatives, or close family friends.

Highlights include:

  • Identifying unique strengths and challenges faced by nontraditional families raising children and youth, including those with special needs.
  • Practicing effective communication strategies between families and school partners to increase comfort and inclusivity for students and families.
  • Collaboratively strategizing and planning supports for adults (families, caregivers, teachers, and support staff), while boosting personal resilience as they face stressful circumstances.

Free and open to all interested participants. Register through FCPS.
