CARE Workshops for Parents

Child-Adult Relationship Enhancement (CARE) Workshops


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. Each CARE workshop is divided into two parts. Each part is 2.5 hours in length and the workshops are usually held two weeks apart.

Part I: Relationship Enhancement

Caregivers are taught skills to decrease negative behaviors while developing positive communication with their child. 

Part II: 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.

These workshops are fun and interactive, completely free of charge, and for adults only (unfortunately, childcare is not provided at this time). CARE Workshops are offered throughout the year at different times and at a variety of locations in the Kansas City metro area. CARE Workshops are provided to families in both English and Spanish.

R.S.V.P. is required, space is limited and we are unable to provide childcare. To register for a CARE workshop, please call (816) 855-1720 or Sign Up Here.
