The NASW SPS webinar “Strategies to Support Older Grandparents Raising Adolescent Grandchildren” examines the continued growth in the number of grandparents raising grandchildren.
While more attention has focused on grandparents raising younger grandchildren, older grandparents with adolescent grandchildren often get lost in the caregiving conversation.
This session focuses on strategies to support older grandparents when younger grandchildren become adolescents.
Social workers will be able to:
- Describe demographic characteristics of older grandparents raising adolescent grandchildren
- Discuss issues affecting older grandparents raising adolescent grandchildren
- Identify promising strategies to support older grandparents raising adolescent grandchildren
