Adoption North London provides an annual training programme for approved adopters including 'contact issues'; exploring and explaining adoption and life story work; the teenage years; education issues; behaviour management etc. We also provide training for newly approved adopters and specialist training for adopters of children with special behavioural needs. You can find out the full details of this year’s programme in the Adoption Support Handbook.
This following short film highlights one of the areas of learning for adopters i.e. the effect of trauma upon children. Click here to watch it.
In addition adoption support social workers can advise on training provided by other agencies such as the Post Adoption Centre to which all boroughs in the consortium belong. Parents who have adopted through a borough in the consortium should receive mailings throughout the year to let them know about workshops, seminars, groups and other events that might be of interest to them. If you would like to receive this information, this can be arranged through your Adoption Support Team.
