The purpose of this quantitative study was to evaluate the effectiveness of the Infant Adoption Awareness Training Program to increase the knowledge of professionals about adoption. The sample consisted of 40 participants who attended the Infant Adoption Awareness training. The pretest was given before the participants began the training and at the end of the training.
The results of this study found the pre and posttest outcomes demonstrated significant increase in the participants' knowledge about adoption. The implications of the findings are that professionals who receive training will understand adoption and will help ensure clients are receiving accurate information. The social work practice and policy implications are discussed as well as recommendations for future research.
