Community Outreach & Education
The Cradle is committed to advancing the field of adoption through education. We offer a wide range of materials and in-service opportunities to Illinois-based health care and social work providers as well as courses and workshops for adoption professionals nationwide.
The Cradle's Community Outreach Team is pleased to offer adoption-related educational offerings customized to your organization's specific needs and timeframes.
See a list of topics for in-services presentations.
Offerings can be simple in-services, round table discussions, seminars or Grand Rounds-like presentations. Participants may include any department
- Social Work or Case Management staff
- Risk Management
- Attending or resident physicians
- Emergency Room personnel
Our offerings are free of charge, arranged at your staff's convenience and both interactive and participative.
We can also work with you and through your organization to provide CMEs or CEUs. We can even assist you to ‘Train the Trainer'. Needs assessments can be developed on your behalf.
Our downloadable Professionals' Guide to Adoption and Illinois Adoption Law is great supplement to our in-services presentations.
