A training for caseworkers, resource (foster) parents, adoptive parents, child therapists and other supporting providers.

A child’s transition from foster to adoptive family is one of the most important events in a child’s life. Yet the adults involved are often engaged in the complexities of trying to balance many needs of their own and the child welfare system. This training will focus on strategies to reorient the adoptive transition process on the attachment needs of the child. Many of these strategies may also be useful for transitions between foster placements or reunifications with birth families.


Redmond Reams, PhD is a Licensed Psychologist with over 40 years’ experience providing therapy to children (birth to 18 years) and their families, as well as adults. He has published multiple research articles on adoptive transitions. He has taught at Portland State University, OHSU and the Oregon Psychoanalytic Center, is past president of the Oregon Infant Mental Health Association, and has consulted to child welfare on complex adoptive transitions.
