ECE Club Events

  • CARE Training: Saturday, April 21; 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. Location TBD
    • Child-Adult Relationship Enhancement (CARE) is a trauma-informed, field-initiated training developed by the Trauma Treatment Training Center for general usage by non-clinical adults who interact with children with a history of trauma. CARE is not a therapy, but uses similar skills taught in Parent-Child Interaction on Therapy. CARE utilizes the 3 P skills (Praise, Paraphrase and Point-Out Behavior) to connect with children, a set of techniques for giving children effective positive commands, and selective ignoring techniques to redirect problematic behaviors. CARE also contains a trauma education component to contextualize the use of these skills with the kinds of behaviors and problems exhibited by children with a history of trauma.
