The Resource Parent Curriculum
The Resource Parent Curriculum is a course that provides support and helpful tips and tools for parents who are raising children who are in, or have been in, the child welfare system or residential care.
What makes RPC Useful?
Children or youth who cannot remain safely at home with their birth families are often placed in the homes of relatives, licensed foster parents or adopted. Many of these children have lived through traumatic experiences that affect their behaviors, feelings and attitudes. A child’s history can make taking care of them on a day-to-day basis challenging and sometimes stressful. Once a resource parent understands why a child who has experienced trauma behaves the way he or she does, it can be easier to provide the support and care that child needs.
Who can sign up?
RPC is designed for families that currently have a child in their care. The curriculum provides time during each session for parents to discuss a particular child in their care and try out new skills and tools that will reduce the stress of parenting a child who has experienced trauma. NOTE: Attendance at all 8 meetings is strongly recommended. Each class meets from 6:00 to 8:00 pm, but you are invited to join us a little early to enjoy some food and socializing (from 5:30 to 6:00).
