C.A.S.E. Training Institute for Professionals to Support Foster/Adoptive Families
The foster and adoption community relies on competent professionals to understand their needs and provide appropriate assistance and support. Our goal is to widen the network of people who can have a positive impact on the lives of foster and adopted children, adolescents, adults and their families as well as expectant/birth parents and their families.
If you are a professional interested in learning how to best meet the needs of those you work with, you’ll be well-served by exploring all that the C.A.S.E. Training Institute has to offer. The education you receive through the Training Institute integrates theory, research, best practices, and innovative strategies with content that can be customized to suit your specific needs or those of your organization. We provide education and training through one-on-one or group consultation, seminars, workshops, and webinars for:
- Mental health professionals
- Adoption agency staff
- Child welfare workers
- Members of the legal community: attorneys, judges, CASA workers
- School counselors and teachers
- Universities and colleges
For those mental health professionals wanting to specialize in supporting the foster and adoption community, C.A.S.E. has developed Training for Adoption Competency (TAC), a post master’s curriculum in adoption competency.
Look for our Adoption Competency Initiatives on our website for more information on TAC as well as our National Adoption Competency Mental Health Training Initiative.
