Developmental and Behavioral Sciences CARE Workshop for Parents
Developmental and Behavioral Sciences CARE Workshop for Parents

About the Sessions

Child-Adult Relationship Enhancement (CARE) Workshops were developed for parents and caregivers of children ages 2-12 who have experienced stressful or traumatic events in their lives, children with behavior problems, or parents who want to strengthen the relationship with their child. The goal of CARE is to strengthen the adult-child relationship and increase children’s positive behaviors.

CARE is divided into two parts:

Relationship Enhancement. Caregivers are taught skills to decrease negative behaviors while developing positive communication with their child. Caregivers use the following skills to increase positive behaviors: Praise, Paraphrase and Point Out Behavior.

Strategies for Compliance. Caregivers are taught elements of effective discipline and child management skills such as how to give good commands, when and how to use selective ignoring and other discipline techniques to redirect problematic behavior.

CARE Workshops are provided for free by Children’s Mercy Hospital. R.S.V.P. is required and space is limited. CARE Workshops are for parents and caregivers only. Unfortunately, we are unable to provide childcare for this workshop.
