Webinar #6 Agenda:

NTI focuses on key competencies that are critical for the journey towards adoption competency for both child welfare and mental health professionals as they work with foster/adoptive/guardianship youth and families. This webinar will explore the life-long process of adoption, including the factors that shape adjustment and either support or threaten children’s and the family’s ongoing safety, permanency, and well-being. We’ll explore the needs of children and families after adoption or guardianship and the continuum of post-adoption/guardianship services that help to prevent adoption disruption or dissolution and enhance permanency and well-being.

Key Learning Objectives:

  • Recognize adoption as a life-long process, with ongoing elevated mental health needs often years after placement.
  • Identify key characteristics of post-adoption work across the life cycle.
  • Understand the different types of adoption and guardianship instability and contributing factors present.
