Rudd Adoption Research Program Lecture | Abbie Goldberg PhD

Thursday, February 24, 2022 1:00pm

What do teachers know about adoption? How do they obtain and use that knowledge? How do they apply it in their classrooms?

These questions and more are explored by Dr. Goldberg, who, with Dr. Hal Grotevant, surveyed over 200 K-12 teachers across the United States during her term as Rudd Family Visiting Professor at UMass Amherst. Dr. Goldberg will discuss how the study’s findings can ultimately help parents and teachers work together more effectively to address the needs of adopted children in school. The live virtual presentation will be followed by Q&A. Register below!
