Many children in foster or kinship care have a history of exposure to trauma. Caring for Children Who Have Experienced Trauma: A Workshop for Resource Parents (RPC) is a PowerPoint-based training curriculum designed to be taught by a mental health professional and foster parent as cofacilitators. It includes nine case studies of representative foster children from the ages of eight months to 15 years, as well as cases of secondary traumatic stress in parents.
The complete curriculum is available on the NCTSN Learning Center, as part of an online community for Resource Parent Facilitators. (Note: you must create an account on the Learning Center in order to join the community.) Click here  to access the following resources:
