                      Full-Day Workshop

    Thursday, October 5, 2017

    *** Note- This workshop will be limited to 120 participants. On-site registration will be available only if there is space.

    Child Adult Relationship Enhancement (CARE) through Center for Child and Family Health NASP Domain 4

    Child maltreatment impacts approximately two million children each year, with physical abuse and neglect the most common form of maltreatment. These children are at risk for mental and physical health concerns and the ability to form positive social relationships is also adversely affected. Child Adult Relationship Enhancement (CARE) is a set of skills designed to improve interactions of any adult and child or adolescent. 

    Two CARE developers will co-facilitate a full day training for up to 120 attendees. The CARE training will inform participants of the components of CARE, identify strengths and challenges of using CARE skills, and allow for activities to create a more in depth understanding of the CARE model. Adult learning techniques will be used throughout the training.

    Please note: attendees will not have adequate CARE training or skills to be able to implement a CARE program in their agency at the end of the workshop. If additional training is desired, they should contact Training Program Manager, Jackie Mroz, at jackie.mroz@duke.edu for more information.
