ARC Reflections: Meet Archie, the Explorer!
Archie will help guide you through all of our training and resources available to you!
A training curriculum for foster parents, kin, and other caregivers of children and teens exposed to complex trauma. Participants learn how trauma may affect youth in their care and develop tools for managing these challenges. An evaluation by Child Trends, a non-profit, nonpartisan research center, showed ARC Reflections to be immediately helpful to foster parents in understanding and supporting the children and teens in their care. Every parent who fosters or adopts through Children’s Home Society has the opportunity to take this training and is expected to complete it after licensure. Upon completion of ARC Reflections, parents have access to a monthly ARC Skills workshop. This workshop provides the opportunity to learn how to apply the information and work through challenges with other parents.
