Training and support for professionals

You and your staff play a vital role in making sure a woman with an unexpected pregnancy receives accurate, timely, and non-judgmental adoption information as a part of her options counseling. To help you, we provide free training to educators, social workers, and health care professionals on a range of issues related to adoption.

Hospital nursesTraining programs are designed to give professionals, who work with expectant parents, the basic knowledge and tools you need to comfortably discuss adoption, equally and objectively with all other pregnancy options. Our goal is to educate and empower women with an unplanned pregnancy to make an informed decision.

Our training programs are taught by a licensed, adoption counselor, who will address a variety of topics including:

  • How do I bring up adoption with a woman experiencing an unplanned pregnancy?
  • What is the appropriate language to use when discussing adoption?
  • Who can I contact if I don’t have answers to all of her adoption questions?
  • When should I refer a woman to the Adoption Center for Family Building?
  • What support groups and public assistance is available to her?
  • What can I say about the birth father’s rights?
  • What if the woman is in labor or has already given birth?

The Adoption Center for Family Building is a private, non-profit adoption agency that’s licensed in Illinois and Indiana.

To learn more about our adoption services or to schedule a training session, please call us at 847-674-3231 or email us.
