Encompass is offering a Child-Adult Relationship Enhancement (CARE) Training on Tuesday, September 25 at Snoqualmie Valley Hospital. The CARE training is from 9:00 am-12:00 pm ($100), and there is an advanced CARE & facilitator training from 9:00 am-4:00 pm ($850).

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 complement ongoing therapeutic services.

Who CAREs?

CARE is for any adult working with children or teens to improve relationships and reduce mild to moderate behavior challenges, including:

  • Parents (foster, kinship, adoptive, biological)
  • School personnel
  • Medical and allied health professionals
  • Mental health professionals
  • Autism service providers
  • Child welfare or advocates
  • Early childhood program providers
  • Home visitors
  • Shelter, residential, substance abuse treatment staff
