Empowered to Parent
Children are our greatest asset. When children experience a relationship-based hurt, mending the brokenness can only come through a nurturing relationship. Empowered to Parent (ETP) offers caregivers the opportunity to develop skills necessary to bring healing relationships to children. This training is founded in the principles of Trust-Based Relational Intervention (TBRI) of the Karyn Purvis Institute of Child Development. Be a part of changing a child's developmental trajectory.
Caregiver / Parent Training
Change is best experienced in a child's home environment under the care of loving caregivers. ETP is a multi-session caregiver training intensive designed to equip caregivers in skills useful for transforming a child's journey. Summer classes include training for the parents / caregivers, with a therapeutic child's group taking place simultaneously. New groups will be starting in May and January.
June - July 2019: Registration is now OPEN. Cost is $150 per family. In order to effectively focus therapeutic components, ages in children’s group may be limited.
Dates: Tuesdays, June 4th - 25th, July 9th - 30th
Our buddies are a vital part of a child's success in this training. Each child is assigned a personal buddy to participate in activities each week. Buddies serve as role models through playful, engaging activities. Buddies are expected to be present for all 8-wk sessions so that a child is never without their buddy. There is no cost to be involved. For the protection and integrity of this training, Buddies must agree to a background check and sign a confidentiality statement. Buddies support our therapeutic groups that will be starting in June 2019. Click below to get started.
