Our 1800+ graduates have all said that the training has improved their practice.

As a TAC trainer I have enjoyed watching students grow professionally and implement their learning in their practice settings. Each student brings their own experience and expertise which makes for rich conversations in these sessions and provides multidimensional learning for the students and myself as a trainer/practitioner. I feel very passionate about the methodologies and techniques I am able to share with the groups, as I know first-hand how these approaches have improved my own clinical effectiveness with complex adoption cases over the years. I feel privileged to be a TAC trainer from its very beginning in Minnesota and have gained so much in my own learning as a result.Wendy L.
