Submissions are being accepted for Posters/Roundtables as well as Award Nominees!

The Adoption Initiative is a pioneering biennial forum presenting a multitude of perspectives in academic research, practice and activism to create a greater understanding of the adoption experience and better meet the needs of our community. The 2016 theme “Myth and Reality in Adoption: Transforming Practice Through Lessons Learned” will focus on themes relevant to the training of mental-health professionals in the field. It further focuses on the personal growth and deeper understanding of individuals, families, and communities affected by adoption.
