Adoption Training

Adoption for children and their adoptive parents can be very challenging. The majority of children are removed from their birth families because they have suffered abuse and neglect. Many will have had a number of different foster homes, and each move, including the one to their adoptive home, will contribute to the child’s experience of loss, insecurity, and trauma.

CCS Adoption provides the training, care, and support, that will help to ease those challenges and for parents to experience the very many rewards that adopting a child brings. The sessions are run by an experienced adopter, and a social worker or assistant social worker. There will be group exercises, discussions, and film clips to help support learning.

Training is available to all prospective adoptive parents undergoing, or who have undergone, assessment with a voluntary or regional adoption agency. If you are a prospective/adopter with CCS adoption you can book all your training  directly with your social worker.

A minimum of four households per session is required for training to take place.
