What is CARE?

CARE is a trauma-informed, field-initiated training for parents and caregivers of children with behavioral and emotional challenges, including a trauma history. CARE is not a therapy, but uses similar skills taught in evidence-based child therapies.

How does it work?

  • Praise, Paraphrase, and Point-Out behavior to connect with children
  • Using Effective Positive Commands to help children listen
  • Selective Ignoring Techniques to redirect problematic behaviors
  • Trauma Education to contextualize the use of the these skills with children who have a history of trauma

Who can benefit from CARE?

CARE can be used with children of all ages and can be generalized to a wide variety of settings and implemented at different levels of intensity. CARE is supported by pragmatic evidence of its effectiveness. 

If you're a parent or caregiver of a child with behavioral and emotional challenges, this training can help you!
