The Center for Advanced Studies in Child Welfare awarded funding for new adoption certificate
CASCW is excited to announce it has been awarded funding by the Minnesota Department of Human Services to support the newly developed Permanency and Adoption Competency Certificate (PACC).
The PACC was developed in response to community demand to meet the need for increasing the availability and competency of a professional workforce able to serve the unique and complex clinical needs of adopted individuals and their families.
The PACC curriculum, developed by the Center for Adoption Support and Education (CASE), is an advanced level certificate program for mental health and child welfare professionals. It will consist of 15 Modules (13 in person, 2 online), with the first cohort beginning in September 2011. Successful PACC graduates will earn 80 hours of CEU's, certificate of completion (with potential for a national credential), and inclusion on state-wide list of adoption-competent providers.
Look for registration information on CASCW's website beginning July 5.
