The Center for Adoption Support and Education (C.A.S.E.) is dedicated to providing support and education to everyone in the adoption community. C.A.S.E. was created in May 1998 to provide pre and post-adoption counseling and educational services to families, educators, child welfare staff, and mental health providers in Maryland, Northern Virginia, and Washington, D.C. In addition, C.A.S.E. is a national resource for families and professionals through its training, publications, and consultations.
C.A.S.E. is a private, non-profit adoptive family support center. Its programs focus on helping children from a variety of foster care and adoptive backgrounds to receive understanding and support which will enable them to grow into successful, productive adults.
C.A.S.E. defines post-adoption services as ongoing, comprehensive support services that include education, counseling, family forums, and advocacy which address clearly identified developmental issues and social-emotional challenges frequently shared by adoptees and their families. Post-adoption involves preventive measures to ensure the preservation of adoptive families.
Debbie Riley, Executive Director provides a consultation with a family and the problems the child or adolescent is exhibiting. Specializes in Reactive Attachment Disorder (RAD). That is what makes C.A.S.E.’s clinical team unique.
In addition to our services for children/adolescents and their families, C.A.S.E. therapists also work with adults who were adopted, prospective adoptive parents and birth parents. Clients at C.A.S.E. also benefit from the Center’s strong collaborative community network of educators, pediatricians, psychologists, and other mental health providers, which ensure extensive access to school and community services. http://adoptionsupport.org/couns/couns_staff.php
