When will CARE happen:
Friday January 27, 2017
6:30-8:30 pm during PTO Movie Night
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.
Remember that next Friday, October 28th is our Fall Movie Night. We will be watching Hotel Transylvania (rated G). This will be a sales free event, we will only be supplying the movie and popcorn. Feel free to bring snacks to share or a picnic for your family. Blankets to sit on are encouraged. The movie will start at 6:15.
There will be a PTO planning chat happening in the media center during the movie if you want to get involved in the upcoming mascot elections, book fair, room parents or general planning.
We won’t need many volunteers during the event but we WILL need clean up help so please stick around after the movie to help us get things back in order if you can. PTO is responsible for leaving the cafeteria ready for use on Monday, we cannot have these events if we don’t reset everything and it gets done quickly when we have lots of help.
This is also your child’s opportunity to wear their costume to show off to their friends since they cannot wear costumes to school on Halloween. We hope you can join us!
