Consider the Possibilities

The Pregnancy Counseling Training is an online program designed to give professionals basic knowledge and the tools they need to understand and share the option of adoption on an equal basis with all other options. This training aims to give pregnancy counselors the confidence to comfortably share the option of adoption so that pregnant clients can be empowered to make a fully informed decision.

This free online training can be taken at any time and you may register for the training and take it all at once or in segments at your convenience. You may also revisit the training site later to access the many downloadable resources available to help you share the positive option of adoption.
