Developing a Positive Racial and Ethnic Identity

Parents who adopt children from a different ethnic or racial background have additional parenting tasks as they assist their children in developing positive racial and ethnic identity.  One of the leading experts in the field of transracial adoptions is Dr. Joseph Crumbley, DSW.  One of the experts featured in this video, Dr. Crumbley speaks to the need for parents to not minimize their child’s experience of racism and discrimination.  As you will see in this clip, this is often a very tricky subject for Caucasian parents.
