CCFH will offer the workshop “Caring for Children Who Have Experienced Trauma,” to families at no cost this spring. Also known as the Resource Parent Curriculum (RPC), the course provides tools for foster, kinship, and adoptive caregivers who are raising children who are in, or have been in, the child welfare system or institutional care.
This 8-week workshop 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: Wednesdays, April 13 – June 1, 2022, from 6:30 – 8:30 p.m.
Where: Virtually! Through video conferencing technology.
Cost: Free to attend – pre-registration required
- Registration will be open until Wednesday, April 6
- 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.
