Those who register will now only have access to all session recordings available to watch through September 30.
What attendees are saying about the virtual 2021 NACAC conference:
“This was better than any expectation I could have imagined. This is my first all virtual conference. I have attended major International conferences over the past 20 years as a social worker, and I will say that this conference went smoothly, exceeded my expectations and provided amazing insight that I will most definitely use in my work and family life. Thank you so much!!”
“The trainings were all so empowering and engaging! I had a lot of light bulb moments where things just finally made sense. As an adoptive parent and a social worker practicing in the field, I left here feeling so empowered, engaged and eager to share the knowledge and experiences I had with others! Thank you for such an amazing conference!”
The sessions inspire, inform, and encourage all members of the adoption and foster care community! Check out the session descriptions here.
We are offering workshops from expert speakers covering a range of topics, including:
- The impact of trauma and loss
- Core issues in adoption
- Effective therapeutic techniques in adoption
- Kinship care and birth family connections
- Parenting children with disabilities and challenges
- Older children and youth
