Best Practices Training Academy

Knowledge is power!  The Coalitions offers several opportunities for families, parent support groups, agencies and professionals to build their skills.

The New York State Annual Foster Care and Adoption Conference

Our annual conference offers a unique opportunity for training. Certificate of attendance are offered and some workshops earn social work CEU credits. Find information about past conferences, access workshop materials, handouts and brochures, check out the pictures, or order audio versions of the speakers and workshops.


Best Practices Training Academy Workshops

We offer workshops on a variety of topics related to foster care, adoption, child development, family court, trauma and attachment. Workshops are generally 60 to 90 minutes in length and are offered free of charge.  The Coalition can also customize longer curricula based on your group’s needs.  Certificates of attendance offered. 


Coalition Hosted Trainings and Events

Throughout the year, the Coalition hosts events and trainings throughout the state. Whether we are partnered with a collaborating agency or bringing a workshop training to an affiliated parent group, you can find the event and registration information you need from the Coalition. 


Award Winning Recruitment and Training Videos

In collaboration with Photosynthesis Productions, the Coalition has produced several documentary training videos that are used world wide.  We are happy to schedule a screening and discussion.
