Summary

When getting a foster kid back with his family is not going to work, adoption is the next most secure permanency option. This training focuses specifically on achieving permanency through adoption with emphasis on the clinical skills necessary in preparing children and youth, resource families and newly recruited foster families for the transition. The 2-day complete training manual increases skill building through role plays, case studies and small group exercises. The manual builds on the Lifelong Families training and the Casey Family Services Replication Manual training.
