Child-Adult Relationship Enhancement (CARE) Workshops were developed for individuals working with caregivers of children ages 2-12 who have experienced stressful or traumatic events in their lives, children with behavior problems, or parents who want to strengthen the relationship with their child. Based on parent training programs, including the strong evidence-based treatment, Parent-Child Interaction Therapy (PCIT), CARE was initially developed to fill an important gap in mental health services for children of any age who are considered at-risk for maltreatment or other problems. The goal of CARE is to strengthen the adult-child relationship and increase children’s positive behaviors. Since 2006, over 2000 caregivers, mental health, child welfare, educators, and other professionals have received CARE training with a focus on children who are exposed to trauma and maltreatment.
CARE is divided into two parts:
Relationship Enhancement. Participants will be taught skills/ interventions to decrease negative behaviors while developing positive communication with children. Interventions will be presented so that you can help your caregivers utilize the following skills to increase positive behaviors: Praise, Paraphrase and Point Out Behavior.
Strategies for Compliance. Participants are taught elements of effective discipline and child management skills such as how to give good commands, when and how to use selective ignoring and other discipline techniques to redirect problematic behavior.
