Open adoption is a kind of family formation. The ARCS' Open Adoption Workshop teaches adoptive parents how to build and maintain an extended family open adoption relationship.  This daylong workshop will focus on how to prepare for an open adoption relationship, how to assess your readiness for such a relationship, how to build and maintain an extended family open adoption relationship, and how to cope with the relationship challenges that may occur in an open adoption.
