Adoption Seminars... Bob & Beth at their Adoption Seminar

Beth Noone, Child & Adolescent Psychotherapist, and Bob Noone, Adoption Attorney & Child Advocate, offer group seminars on how to encourage healthy attachments in foster and adoptive homes.

Topics Include:

· Intro to Attachment Issues in Foster Kids and Reasonable expectations for my child's ability to attach.
· How the Birth Parents attachment affects your relationship now.
· Tools and Strategies to Enhance Attachment.
· Understanding the Child's Confusion about their parents' termination . . . distorted reasoning as to why they are in care.

Bob's Materials on "Best Practices for the GAL" can be found as follows:     [ Slides ]     [ Handout Materials ]

Seminars are limited to a small group of parents who are either foster parents or have adopted (or those who are anticipating adoption). Single Parent adoptions welcome also. Case workers serving children also welcome. Because of the nature of personal questions that may be asked, audio taping is not allowed.

If you are interested in helping organize such an event, or if you would like to attend one held in your area, you can call Bob Noone at 304-784-8818 or if you prefer: Email Bob Noone

"All good more time and info. great training" ... "Great tips and advice" ... "Amazing, informative session" ... "Very knowledgeable and experienced"

"I just wanted to let you know that I really enjoyed your presentation about the paperless law office as well as your wife's presentation. You both are doing an incredible service to our kids in WV as well as AL and I just wanted to send along my appreciation for that."

From our "Foster Family" seminar:

"Bob – I can’t thank you and Beth enough for all that you did to make our conference wonderful! Our families really enjoyed your message and we hope to have you back again soon. Our families had nothing but great things to say. They loved the singing, the sincere interest you both took, and the advocacy that you gave. They really also liked that you were open to questions and speaking one on one with the “Stump the Chump” portion of the program."
