This 3-hour in-service training for caregivers provides an introduction to the adoption process including the homestudy, adoption support, the legal process and steps to adoption. This training is open to all participants: those who have not taken Caregiver Core Training, those who have, and those who are using the training as a field placement. This training helps caregivers consider their decisions around public and private agencies and whether to foster to adopt or pursue adoption only. The focus of the training is understanding the process including the emotional impacts of commitment, changing your family, grieving and attachment.
The training will also give information about:
- open adoptions
- the placement process
- and more.
