Conference Watch August 28, 2018 - GCCF Interactive Plenary Sessions

FOSTERING GREAT IDEAS  - Life in Limbo Plenary Experience

Fostering Great Ideas will present an interactive plenary session at the 2018 GCCF.  In the Life in Limbo Plenary Experience, scheduled Thursday, October 18, 3:00 pm - 4:30 pm, you will become a child, foster parent, birth parent, or observer. Bonds are formed and disruptions occur. You will struggle, but also find solutions, building resilience and a way forward. We end emotionally engaged, understanding what it means to live in limbo. Takeaways are further compassion and a renewed urgency to continue our good work. Presented by Fostering Great Ideas.
