Two representatives of Family Design Resources Inc. were among the presenters at the Adoption Support and Preservation National Conference, held June 1-2 in Nashville, Tenn.
The national conference gives professionals and leaders in the field of post-adoption services the opportunity to share and discuss effective practice and policy at the state and national levels.
Brenda Lawrence, executive director, was part of a lunch panel presentation, “What’s Working: An Introduction to Thriving Post-Adopt Programs in Pennsylvania, Illinois and Tennessee.” She provided an overview of Pennsylvania’s SWAN post-permanency program model.
That afternoon, Lawrence and Lea Moyer, post-permanency technical assistant, co-presented “Navigating a Difficult Journey,” focused on the challenges associated with the dissolution or disruption of an adoption.
Family Design Resources was one of the national conference sponsors and exhibitors.
