New Training Course from America World’s ACT Program!
The Adoption Coaching and Training program at America World is excited to offer a new training for pre-adoptive and new adoptive families entitled, “PREPARING FOR THE FIRST SIX MONTHS AFTER PLACEMENT.” The course covers many topics that can be challenging in the initial adoption adjustment including eating, sleeping, bonding, going back to work and school, and much more. The course is presented by Diane Hood who is a seasoned adoption professional and an adoptive mom, and who is currently serving as the America World East Clinical Supervisor and Director of our Georgia office. The course is 2 hours and the cost is $40. You can register and find more information at this link: REGISTER HERE.
There are more courses through ACT Training as well, including:
- A course for the extended family and friends of adoptive families entitled SUPPORTING ADOPTIVE FAMILIES WITH UNDERSTANDING AND WISDOM. This is a great Christmas gift for the loved ones in your support system who are helping you in your adoption! ($25, 1.5 hours).
- SUCCESSFUL PARENTING IN TRANSRACIAL AND TRANSCULTURAL ADOPTIONS, a course designed to help adoptive families successfully parent an adopted child who is of a different race or culture, with topics such as identity formation and racism from a Christian worldview. ($30, 1.5 hours)
Remember too that we are available for coaching and consultation to try to meet all of your adoption-related needs. Feel free to reach out to us at 800-429-3369, or ACT@awaa.org.
