CCFH will offer the Resource Parent Curriculum (RPC) to families virtually at no cost this spring. The course, also known as “Caring for Children Who Have Experienced Trauma,” provides tools for parents who are raising children who are in, or have been in, the child welfare system or institutional care.
RPC is designed to be provided to participants in person. However, because of the current social distancing guidelines, and the desire for resource parents to receive trauma information and support at this particularly stressful time, the workshop will be held virtually.
Who: This workshop is open to Resource Parents with a child or youth currently in their care. A Resource Parent is a caregiver of a child associated with the welfare system, international adoption, or a private agency. A Resource Parent could be a licensed foster parent, adoptive parent, or an adult caring for a child of a relative or friend.
When: Tuesdays, April 21 – June 9, 2020, from 8:00 – 10:00 p.m.
Where: Virtually! Through video conferencing technology.
Cost: Free to attend – pre-registration required
- Registration will be open until Tuesday, April 14
- To participate virtually, participants will need access to internet, a working camera for video conferencing, and space to participate in the workshop while youth are engaged elsewhere.
- Please fill out separate registration information for each caregiver interested in participating.
- Once registration has been processed, an individual 15-20 minute session via video-conferencing will be scheduled to make sure technology concerns are addressed before the workshop begins.
