Education Seminars for the Intercountry Adoption Community
Intercountry Adoption Family Support Service (ICAFS) provides a range of educational seminars and resources to raise awareness and increase skills and knowledge of wide-ranging topics and issues related to intercountry adoption.
Matters of Adoption – a podcast that takes a look at the myriad of perspectives and opinions around intercountry adoption in Australia.
This, our first series of 4 episodes, has a focus on the life stages of adoptees and we interview some of our practitioners about the work they’ve been doing to support adoptive parents, adoptee children and teens as well as young and older adult adoptees. We’d like to acknowledge that this series is exploring the practitioner’s perspective, and future episodes will include the voices of all involved.
You can view the webinars on the following links. Powerpoint presentations are available for some. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like a copy.
