Adoption training is essential to the success of an adoption!

Utah Adoption Specialists requires that adoptive couples complete some form of adoption training as part of completing their home study. UAS allows couples to choose the path to training that feels most comfortable to them personally.

Couples may choose to read books from a pre-approved list and then attend a birth parent panel, may take 10 hours of online training courses through Adoption Learning Partners, or may attend an in-person training conference offering at least 10 hours of instruction.

Utah Adoption Specialists holds semi-annual training conferences in February and in August. Come learn from all sides of the triad, and leave feeling more confident and prepared to manage relationships in adoption. Each training conference will include a Birth Parent Panel, Adoptee Panel, and Adoptive Parent Panel. Other classes include Openness in Adoption, Attachment in Adoption, Creating Your Online Profile, Transracial Adoption, Adoption and Infertility, and Adoption and the Law.

Our training conferences are open to anyone interested in learning more about adoption- it is not necessary to be a current UAS client to attend. UAS clients who choose to attend a UAS training conference can register for training scheduled for a future date, and this will not delay the completion or approval of their home study.
