MPE-Education.org is an initiative of Right to Know. We advocate for people impacted by DNA surprises and misattributed parentage experiences (MPE) which can occur due to an adoption, assisted conception, or those conceived from a non-paternal event (NPE) and promote understanding of the complex intersection of genetic information, identity, and family dynamics.
A Misattributed Parentage Experience (MPE) is the discovery of a change in a person’s perceived genealogy from a:
- Non-Paternity Event (NPE): an Extramarital Affair, Tryst, or other sexual encounter, or Rape/Assault
- Assisted Conception: Gamete Provider (Sperm or Egg), Embryo Provision, or Surrogacy
- Adoption: Hidden, Orphan, Foster Care, Late Discovery Adoptees (LDA), or Stepchild
Right to Know’s MPE-Education.org website is the first-ever educational platform dedicated to providing information on DNA surprises and misattributed parentage to professionals and the general public. With this initiative, we aim to tackle one of the most important aspects of the MPE discovery – the need for training for licensed therapists and information for those impacted by an MPE.
Right to Know provides continuing education credit hour CE courses for licensed therapists as well as general classes for the public related to MPEs as non-CE courses (no credit hours). We also offer recordings of past live webinars featuring prominent professionals to discuss MPE-related topics.
