Madison will hold a mandatory all-day training to prepare families for their hosting experience. This is critical in preparing our families of what to expect, safety planning procedures, other topics including (but not limited to) attachment and bonding, dealing with traumatized children, and the impact of institutionalism.
This training covers Hague required topics and will count as a significant portion of the family’s training should they decide to adopt. MAA’s training is approved by DCFS.
Training is TENTATIVELY SCHEDULED at Madison Adoption Associates’ Illinois location on Saturday, June 4th, 2016, from 9:00 am to 4:00 pm. MAA suggests that each family seek out additional training resources on their own. We recommend that every family prepare themselves for this experience as much as possible.
