MN ADOPT Workshops

The MN ADOPT Education Program promotes the importance of ongoing learning through a variety of in-person and online-based educational offerings focused on topics specific to parenting through adoption, foster care, or kinship caregiver.

Our workshops and training series are available at various times and locations across the state as well as online based webinars which can be utilized by people anywhere.  MN ADOPT offers two ongoing training series, Beyond Consequences, with Brenda Benning and Reactive Attachment Disorder: Learning Alternate Behavior Series (RAD LABS), with Deena McMahon and Krista Nelson. These workshops allow more time for an in-depth look at parenting from different perspectives.  Click here for more information about our two ongoing training opportunities.

Through MN ADOPT Workshops/Webinars, and the services of the MN ADOPT HELP Program families can be confident they will be connected to professionals and trainers who understand the complexities of adoption.

We invite you to explore our upcoming workshops below, as well as those available for immediate purchase in our webinar library.
