Meeting the mental health needs of individuals and families touched by adoption requires specialized training in assessment, diagnosis and intervention. At each phase of the clinical process, clinicians must be attuned to the complex array of historical and contemporary factors impacting the lives of their clients and, specifically, to the ways in which the adoption experience can influence their identity, relationships and development.
This course is level one of the ACO's comprehensive Permanency and Adoption Competency Training Program (PACT) aimed at creating permanency and adoption-informed child welfare and mental health practitioners who can support families created through adoption, kinship and guardianship placements in meeting the complex and challenging mental health related challenges experienced by this population.
A certificate of completion will be provided
