Indigenous Perspectives Society

Adoption Online Course (AOL)

Welcome to the Aboriginal Pre-Adoption online training course (AOL). This course is delivered over an 7-week period, accessible 24 hours a day, requiring approximately 3-5 hours a week participant time commitment. AOL is a flexible self-paced and asynchronous engaging course delivered via IPS’s Moodle learning management system. The training is applicable for caregivers (pre/post adoptive parents, foster parents) social workers, interdisciplinary professionals and to anyone working in the field of Aboriginal/Indigenous child and family service delivery. We can easily modify AOL to suite your specific needs.

The AOL course identifies historical and contemporary impacts of colonization and the regeneration of positive culture identity development. The learning from the activities will support a commitment to creating and maintaining connections through promoting holistic well-being of Indigenous children.

“I wish to thank you for recommending the AOL course when I first sent you an inquiry back in April. It was a great learning experience! I have much more to learn, of course, but I now have the tools and resources to help me on my journey as a parent.”
– Richard, AOL Participant, Spring 2015

“This course run by the Indigenous Perspectives Society is one I have recommended again and again to families who are either thinking about adoption or have adopted. And yet, I realised I have never posted a review about it…” To read the rest of her review check out the full post here:
