Research Overview: The TAC (Training for Adoption Competency) program involves a partnership between the UW-Milwaukee Helen Bader School of Social Welfare and the Center for Adoption Support and Education (C.A.S.E.).

TAC is a licensed, post-graduate training program focused on skill acquisition in providing services to adopted persons, birth families, prospective adoptive parents, adoptive families, and kinship families. The 72 hour training program consists of 12 modules on various aspects of adoption practice followed by six monthly case consultation sessions designed to facilitate the transfer of learning to practice. The initiative is funded through a grant from the Jockey International Foundation in Kenosha, Wisconsin.
