On September 23 and 24, 2011 Coordinators2inc will bring together adoption professionals, academics, students and those personally affected by adoption will meet at the University of Richmond School of Law, Richmond VA.
Presenters and attendees will have opportunities to discuss, from multiple viewpoints, adoption as a lifelong process. We do not intend for this symposium to only discuss open adoption nor to only discuss adoption from a positive or negative perspective. We will have a wide range of perspectives to give a full view of the complexity of the issues and to allow attendees an opportunity to consider adoption from another perspective other than their own.
Attendees are expected to be adoptees, first/birth parents, adoptive parents, adoption professionals, therapists, researchers, educators, media professionals, advocates, attorneys, policy makers and legislators.
Registration is $85 for both days, lunch included.http://www.openadoptionsupport.com/symposium/
