About the RAPT Conference
The conference is intended to provide an annual venue for DCS Resource and Adoptive Parents, and the professionals who support them, where they can obtain current and up-to-date training on issues affecting families.
Featured Keynote Speaker
Our featured keynote presenter is Dr. Joseph Crumbley, MSW, LCSW, DSW. The keynote presentation will highlight the family dynamics and emotional challenges for caregivers providing kinship care (i.e. loyalty, guilt, loss, embarrassment). Also highlighted will be how these challenges are different in kinship care from non-relative foster care and adoption. Implications for resource, adoptive parents and professionals will be discussed.
