CCAI’s new Post Adoption Center has been starting the new year off with a bang! With one more Overview class available for attendance on February 8th, the Post Adoption Center will begin its first 8-week course for parents, going over specific TBRI parenting strategies every Tuesday, March 5 – April 30, 2013. These courses are offered for everyone and all are absolutely welcome!
Much of these classes’ curriculum is based upon Dr. Karyn Purvis’ fantastic work in her Trust-Based Relational Intervention (TBRI) and Empowered To Connect programs. A month ago, our own social workers received training in these programs.
