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.
