Transracial and transcultural family systems present unique challenges that can be difficult for even the most skilled families to navigate successfully. Healthy family systems that span culture and race demand vulnerability and bravery that simply does not come easily for most people.
In this workshop, we will explore a variety of complex social and biological issues that influence how our families function in an increasingly complicated social world. We will explore personal bias, identity, and the vital importance of championing safer, braver spaces for our families and their children. Through personal narrative, case studies, reflection, and connection, we will examine how cultural and racial differences impact ourselves, our families and our children, and how we can turn the tides to create futures that are brighter, more tolerant, and stronger than ever before.
