JF&CS Adoption Resources offers a variety of workshops throughout the year to educate pre-adoptive parents. This month, we will be hosting a highly relevant workshop entitled “Evaluating Medical Risk in Domestic Infant Adoption.”

Our speaker, developmental-behavioral pediatric specialist Lisa Prock, is the chair of the American Academy of Pediatrics Section on Adoption and Foster Care. Her clinical specialization focuses on issues unique to adoption, such as understanding biological health history and prenatal experiences. Dr. Prock has led this workshop for Adoption Resources for many years, and the feedback from pre-adoptive parents has always been very positive.

In past years, clients have sometimes asked how this workshop differs from information their pediatrician will provide. While consulting with a pediatrician is ideal for day-to-day issues that may arise (such as illness, ear infections and sleeping concerns), when it comes to evaluating medical risk in adoption, it’s best to hear from a practitioner who specializes in this field.

Dr. Prock’s medical practice follows the latest trends and data regarding children being placed for adoption. It is critical that pre-adoptive parents understand the research around issues such as prenatal exposure and biological concerns so they can make informed decisions.

The workshop is open to the entire community and is intended for pre-adoptive parents, who will receive a certificate for two hours of pre-adoption training.
