Adoption Education and Parent Training
Strengthening family systems through specialized parent education, training, and support
At Adoptions Together, we recognize that families are formed in many ways and that raising a healthy family requires careful preparation and ongoing support. Being a parent, no matter the circumstances, can at times be overwhelming and difficult, yet also highly gratifying. We are committed to providing quality parent training and adoption education to adoptive families, complex blended families, as well as families formed through foster care and kinship care. Adoption education and parent training is designed to ensure that parents are better prepared to meet the challenges and reap the rewards of parenting.
Adoptions Together offers adoption education and parent training on a wide range of topics that address the unique needs of adoptive, blended, foster and kinship care families. Seminars and workshops cover topics such as attachment and trauma, grief and loss, parenting a teen, talking to children about adoption, navigating the birthparent relationship, managing challenging behaviors, and transracial adoption.
Adoption education and parent training is an investment in the health and well-being of your family. The more informed and prepared you are, the more confident and successful you will be as you navigate the journey of parenthood. No matter what issues arise, you can be confident that Adoptions Together is committed to providing specialized parent training, adoption education, and post-placement support that will meet your needs and address your concerns. We continue to work with you through finalization and beyond, providing classes and seminars that support you every step of the way.
Affordable, Convenient, and Easily Accessible Parent Training and Adoption Education
At Adoptions Together, we understand that families have many competing demands, and it is not always practical or feasible to attend a seminar in a classroom setting. In order to be useful and effective, parents must be able to access information and support when they need it most. We strive to make parent training affordable, convenient, and easily accessible by offering in person, online, and on-demand options for parent training and adoption education.
While many seminars can be taught online, we recognize that some families prefer the opportunity to interact face to face, and there is some subject matter that can be better addressed in person. Adoptions Together offers many in-person seminars throughout the year that provide a solid foundation and introduction to issues related to international and domestic adoption. These parent training courses are typically held in our Virginia and Maryland offices and are continuously listed on our Events Calendar
Online parent training affords parents the opportunity to attend classes and enhance their knowledge and skills from the comfort of home – or from any location, for that matter. Adoption education and parent training courses on a wide range of topics are offered in the evenings and are facilitated by knowledgeable and caring professionals with expertise in the subject matter. The interactive online learning environment allows for the exchange of information and ideas between the instructor and participants.
For those who are unable to attend in-person classes or live webinars, Adoptions Together offers a comprehensive resource library of on-demand courses that parents can access at any time, from any location. This library allows busy parents to enhance their knowledge and complete training requirements at their convenience.
