Since 1998, the Center for Adoption Support and Education has created awareness of the deep need for adoption competency in mental health services, and has grown to become the national leader providing mental health and child welfare professionals with training and coaching to become “adoption-competent.” Our programs help these professionals gain the skills, insight and experience necessary to serve the needs of the adoption and foster care communities.

We have written and developed training curricula from years of experience and trained…nurturing, inspiring, and empowering many types of organizations, professionals, and families.
