Social Worker Training and CCAI’s Post Adoption Center

Last Friday, CCAI hosted a social worker training, led by our Director of Adoptions, Judy Winger, our Post-Adoption Manager, Heather Diaz, and CCAI social worker and parent trainer, Cheri Van Vinkle.  The training session served as an introduction to Trust-Based Relational Intervention (TBRI) strategies, a program developed by TCU’s Dr. Karen Purvis.  This was the first social worker training meeting of two, in preparation for CCAI’s Post Adoption Center’s big debut in the new year!

CCAI’s Post Adoption Center (PAC) will be making its debut with a TBRI Overview class offered both January 5, 2013 and February 9, 2013.  PAC will then be introducing its first 8-week course for parents, that will delve more into the specifics of TBRI parenting strategies every Tuesday,  March 5 – April 30, 2013.  These courses are offered for everyone and all are absolutely welcome!

To learn more about what CCAI’s Post Adoption Center will have to offer, please call our fantastic Post-Adoption Manager, Heather, at (303) 850-9998 x22.
