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.
