I just learned about an on line educational seminar for adoptive families. Heart of the Matter Seminars. There are courses you can take to fulfill your adoption education requirements and coursed for families already home. There are even courses for teachers and social workers. I previewed the ones for parents and did not find anything objectionable to my self. In fact, I really liked that they gave good, organized information on each segment I listened to. Science of brain development, parenting and resources. It is well presented and organized and uses outside links. If you are looking for educational opportunities for adoption, parenting, or credits for teachers or social work this is something you should look into. Check it out.
