Child-Adult Relationship Enhancement
Child-Adult Relationship Enhancement (CARE) is a trauma-informed way for any adult to interact with any child or teen. CARE uses ideas and skills derived from evidence-based, positive parenting programs. CARE is not therapy, but can complement ongoing therapeutic services or stand alone. During a multi-hour training hosted at CCFH or your facility, participants will learn a skill set that will enhance child-adult relationships in any setting and with a multitude of child populations, ages 2-18.
Who is CARE for?
CARE is for any adult working with children or teens to improve relationships and reduce mild-to-moderate behavior challenges. Through a positive relationship, a child’s social-emotional development and learning potential are enhanced. CARE can benefit:
- Parents (foster, kinship, adoptive, biological)
- School personnel
- Medical and allied health professionals
- Mental health professionals
- Autism service providers
- Child welfare or advocates
- Early childhood program providers
- Home visitors
- Shelter, residential, substance abuse treatment staff
- Military personnel
- Family court
- Organized child programs (e.g., camps, after-school programs, organized sports, etc.)
- And any other setting that involves children!
