Posted on September 21, 2015. Category:

Are you a relative, parent, foster parent or caregiver….experiencing power struggles, aggressive behavior, tantrums and blowups with the children in your care?

Many behavioral crisis situations can be resolved or prevented with the right skills. TCIF participants will learn to understand the roots of challenging behaviors. They will learn how to assist youth in developing new skills and abilities that replace the need for crisis behaviors.

You must attend all 10 sessions to complete the training. Childcare is available.

We provide food and wonderful chances to discuss real foster care and adoption challenges during these book groups. Open to anyone. Counts for training hour credit for WCS foster parents.
