This session was recorded as part of the National Adoption Conference on September 23, 2021. You may register to take this session as a stand-alone course for $10.

How many calls from families have you received describing a crisis situation with their child that leave you paralyzed on how to help? This presentation details Nightlight Christian Adoptions’ Post Adoption Connection Center services to their clients and specifically sharing on their crisis response process. They will offer details on the structure of their agency’s Placement Stabilization Team, made up of support staff, that respond to all crisis situations with their clients. They will outline the steps of this process and offer ways for you to create a similar structure within your own agency.

At this time, CEs are not available for this course. However, you will receive a training certificate upon completion of the course.
