What is CARE:

Child-Adult Relationship Enhancement (CARE) is a trauma-informed, field-initiated modification of the evidence-based Parent Child Interaction Therapy (PCIT).  This modification uses specific PCIT skills for general usage by non-clinical adults who work with children.

Who is CARE for:

CARE is for any adult who regularly interacts with kids including parents, grandparents, other involved family members, and any school staff member.

How does CARE work:

CARE utilizes the 3 P skills (Praise, Paraphrase and Point out Behavior) to connect with children and build the child-adult relationship.
CARE also teaches set of techniques for giving effective positive commands to children to increase compliance.
CARE teaches adults to use strategic ignoring techniques to redirect problematic behaviors.
