This post-graduate certificate program, developed through a collaborative partnership between GSSW’s Erna and Brad Butler Institute for Families, the Adoption Exchange and the Colorado Department of Human Services, provides advanced training and education in the field of adoption.
The certificate curriculum focuses on specialized theories and practices for working with all members of the adoption triad: birth parents, adoptive parents and adopted individuals. The program emphasizes the development of a framework for understanding the complexity of being a child or adult in a family by adoption, and the therapeutic skills that enable practitioners to work at the individual, couple, group and family levels of clinical practice.
Continuing Education Credits are accredited by Colorado NASW.
MSW or postgraduate degree is required.
Successful graduates may be listed as having completed this specialized course on the Colorado Post-Adoption Resource Center (COPARC) website – A statewide community-based network of services to support adoptive families.
