Adoption Training in the Pacific Northwest

Every state requires you to receive training before becoming an adoptive parent, though the specific content and hours of these trainings will vary depending on location. The training is intended to prepare prospective parents to better understand and care for children coming out of the foster care system. An overview of issues such as general child development, the behaviors trauma may cause in children, and how to best manage behaviors and support the new member of your family, will be addressed throughout the meetings.
