Child-Adult Relationship Enhancement (CARE) is a trauma-informed way for any adult to interact with any child or teen. It seeks to increase positive child-adult interaction, child compliance, and child engagement. CARE uses ideas and skills derived from evidence-based, positive parenting programs. CARE is not therapy, but can compliment ongoing therapeutic services. Participants will learn a skillset that will enhance child-adult relationships in any setting and with a multitude of child populations, ages 2-18.
Participants will learn and practice skills designed to strengthen healthy relationships. Trainers give live feedback to enhance learning of CARE skills. Modifications to training can be made for use with adolescents. CARE training targets two key concepts:
• Positive Relationships: Skills and techniques that work together to strengthen relationships, improve communication, and reduce problematic behaviors.
• Increased Compliance: Tips and strategies to improve the likelihood of following adult directives.
Nationally, 99% of participants report learning at least one useful skill, and 98% would recommend the training to a colleague. CARE blends lecture, activities, and live practice with trainer feedback to create a fast-paced, fun-filled training experience.
CARE™ is a product of the developers from Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center, Duke University Medical Center, and Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia.
