We are very excited that Dillon International will be offering an FREE online book club for pre and post adoptive families. This club will be in an online format meeting once a month on the second Tuesday evening of each month at 8PM CST, starting March 2018 to introduce the group format and give the first reading assignment.
We decided to create this group because books are a great way to bring together people with common interests to share ideas and discuss issues of mutual interest and concern. We have all been in the situation where we have just finished a great book which has raised thoughts and questions, and really want to “process” the contents, but did not have anybody else to share those thoughts with. Especially when reading adoption related material, there is so much to process. We may find that having a safe place to discuss the reading will enhance each participant’s learning experience. There will also be an adoption professional on each call to help facilitate and to offer additional resources if needed.
Our hope is that this group will bring together people with various roles in adoption and of different life stages. And that this will allow for the group to offer different perspectives as we partner through different adoption related material. We hope to focus on each participant learning from the reading, as well as from otherswithin the group.
With families living all over the US we have decided to open this book club in an online format. We will give each participant a call-in number for a once a month discussion. We will keep the monthly reading to less than 30 pages, as we know that each family does not have a lot of free time for reading.
Each participant will purchase his/her own copy (or borrow it from a library or friend) and attend each call ready to share thoughts and hear the opinions of others. The first book that the group will be discussing is The Whole-Brain Child, 12 Revolutionary strategies to Nurture Your Child’s Developing Mind By Daniel J. Siegel, M.D., and Tina Payne Bryson, Ph.D..
