Who Should Attend?
The course is open to all adoption professionals, nurses, social workers, chaplains, physicians, midwives, and all other healthcare professionals who interact with families involved in an adoption placement.
The Family to Family Adoption Support Training is a training addressing the needs of families in the adoption process. Supporting birth families in the hospital environment allows for informed decision making and proactive planning.
The Family to Family Adoption Support Program is the only established hospital-based adoption support program in the nation. This model is currently considered best practice for adoption support before, during and after delivery and builds the foundation for birth family connections.
This training will empower professionals to meet the needs of all parties involved in the adoption process.
This training will empower hospital staff to care for families involved in the process of adoption. We have learned that staff must be trained in grief and loss in regards to miscarriage and infant loss, however, we have never addressed the loss felt during an adoption placement.
This training will address the needs of all parties involved and will provide the framework found in the Family to Family Adoption Program to give care that is compassionate addressing the complex needs of these patients.
This model can also be used to serve gestational carriers and the families who await the birth of their child.
