Applications Invited for First Pennsylvania Training for Adoption Competency Cohort

Family Design Resources, Inc. will launch the first Training for Adoption Competency (TAC) cohort this Fall as part of its efforts to build an adoption-competent clinician workforce in Pennsylvania. Mental health, social work and child welfare professionals from the Philadelphia area interested in gaining the clinical knowledge needed to serve adoptive and kinship families are invited to apply now through September 11, 2020.

The twelve-module course, to be delivered in a virtual training environment to protect the health of participants and instructors, will begin in September and conclude in March 2021.

TAC is an intensive, evidence-based course developed by the Center for Adoption Support and Education (C.A.S.E.) to equip professionals to support the unique and complex needs of adoptive and kinship families. FDR recently joined seventeen states partnering with C.A.S.E. to offer TAC.
