Continuing Education for Hospital Social Workers and Nurses
Amy Nicholas, BSW, LSW Adoptions of Indiana's seminar for social workers and nurses will emphasize best practice when navigating an adoption plan in the hospital setting. Our educator will provide a historical perspective of adoption, will teach the importance of respectful adoption language, and will identify modern adoption practices. In addition, she will explore how social workers and nurses can support all members of the adoption triad in the hospital setting. We are pleased to be able to offer 1-2.5 CEHs from NASW for social workers who participate. Contact the agency for more information.
Professional Development for Educators
Carissa Maddox, MS “Students' ability to learn depends not just on the quality of their textbooks and teachers, but also on the comfort and safety they feel at school and the strength of their relationships with adults and peers there.” (Sarah Sparks, Education Week, 2016) Adoptions of Indiana's seminar for educators will explore how teacher curricular decisions, language, and media choices impact students who joined their family through adoption in their classroom. Professional development can be offered at your school and programming is flexible. Contact the agency for more information.
