Summary of Topic

Child Adult Relationship Enhancement (CARE) is a trauma-informed training model for caregivers and professionals who interact and work with children. This 3-hour CARE Facilitator Course actively builds your skills to facilitate others in your local, on-site agency in the application of CARE through discussion, demonstrations, practice, and live coaching. Completing this course and follow-up consultation also allows you to facilitate CARE parenting groups at your site. This advanced course covers how to give participant feedback during a CARE Workshop, how to teach specific CARE skills, how to structure and facilitate CARE workshops within your local agency, and how to maintain fidelity to the CARE model. In preparation to becoming a CARE Facilitator, participants will review the CARE curriculum, develop adult learning strategies, and practice facilitative methods. Following the on-site CARE Facilitator Course, four (4) web-based CARE Facilitator consultation calls are held in a group format to assist with agency implementation and sustainability issues.



1.       Explain concepts related to providing participant feedback and coaching.

2.       Recognize core features of teaching CARE skills and maintaining fidelity.

3.       Identify methods to structure local, on-site CARE workshops.

4.       Identify strengths and challenges of implementing CARE skills from a facilitator perspective.


Description of Training Activities

CARE provides skill-building opportunities for health, social service, education, and advocacy professionals working with children and families by teaching interactional skills that result in positive outcomes for children. By integrating didactic, multimedia, and experiential components throughout the workshop, participants are taught how to facilitate others in the use of specific, innovative, and evidence-based skills known to improve adult-child relationships. To promote collaboration among participants, techniques are discussed, practiced, and exemplified in a series of activities, including presenter and video demonstrations, large-group activities, small group break-outs, and individual coaching from presenters as participants practice their trainer skills. Participants will be encouraged to apply the skills learned to their specific practical setting, creating a culture and partnerships that support children in developing healthy relationships.
