Backline offers regional and customized trainings on pregnancy, parenting, abortion, and adoption, values clarification, and nonjudgmental all-options counseling. Our dynamic workshops are a great value – participants learn new skills, build and strengthen relationships, and have fun in the process!
“I honestly enjoyed the entire training, but if I had to choose, my favorite part was working in small groups. It was great to share stories and learn from each other. I want to attend EVERYTHING Backline offers!“
The Pregnancy Options Workshop is our signature training. In this workshop, we bring together counselors, educators, health care professionals and advocates to explore values, learn about current practices in abortion, adoption, and parenting, and share tools and skills for offering nonjudgmental support to all people across the spectrum of pregnancy experiences and decisions.
The Pregnancy Options Workshop is held annually in Oakland as well as in locations across the country. We offer a 90-minute version, half-day, and a full 1-2 day training, so please contact us if you’d like us to present at your conference or organization!
All Backline’s public trainings are listed on our Events page. For more information about arranging a private training for your agency or organization, please download this Training Opportunities flyer or contact us.
Backline representatives are also available to provide in-service presentations to your agency, clinic, or community group. In-service presentations are a great way to learn more about Backline services and develop stronger referral systems.
