What is CARE?

Child-Adult Relationship Enhancement (CARE) is a trauma-informed, field-initiated training developed by the Trauma Treatment Training Center for general usage by non-clinical adults who interact with children with a history of trauma. CARE is not a therapy, but uses similar skills taught in Parent-Child Interaction Therapy (PCIT).

CARE utilizes the 3 P skills Praise, Paraphrase, and Point-Out Behavior to connect with children, a set of techniques for giving children effective positive commands, and selective ignoring techniques to redirect problematic behaviors. CARE also contains a trauma education component to contextualize the use of these skills with the kinds of behaviors and problems exhibited by children with a history of trauma.

CARE training is appropriate for any non-clinical or clinical professionals, school personnel, or daycare workers who interact with children.
