New Nurtured Heart Series: (Series Total: 6 Hours) Wednesdays, August 18 & 25, September 1, 2021

The Nurtured Heart Approach ((NHA)) is an amazing set of strategies developed specifically for children with challenging behaviors. Often parents have tried many parenting techniques only to become discouraged when they do not work well. This approach works well for all children, especially those who have not responded well to traditional techniques, and will facilitate parenting success. Children whose parents learn to energize them are much more likely to do well in school; have healthy self- esteem; exhibit empathy and pro-social behavior; and avoid high-risk activities such as drug use, truancy, and criminal activity. Our objective is to see you have a positive relationship with your kids

Achieving Cultural Humility and Awareness to meet our Youth’s Diverse Needs (2 hours) Tuesday, August 31, 2021

Our youth come from diverse cultural and ethnic backgrounds. Our basic assumption is cultural and ethnicity will predispose us to behave in specific ways. In order to provide for the children in our care, we must understand specific concepts, some of these differences that manifest as a result of the social environment, including culture, ethnicity, economics, and language. We must also be willing to look at ourselves from a cultural perspective to embrace the culture of others. Despite how we look, every individual present with a personal history, a unique personality, and a way of being in the world. Children in foster care are no exception to this rule and because of this, it is important that caregivers be willing to explore the varying possibilities so that the needs of our youth are met.

Whole Family Foster Home Training (10 Hours), Thursdays, October 7, 14, 21 & 28, 2021

Whole Family Foster Care is a new placement option for pregnant and parenting dependent youth. Under this placement the RFA home has two roles. The first is as a RFA parent to the pregnant/parenting teen. The second is as a mentor to the pregnant/parenting teen for their non dependent infant. There is a need to place pregnant and parenting dependent teens in a placement with their babies. This series will cover both roles and specifics of mentoring a teen to become a successful parent. We will discuss the role of child development across the spectrum of birth-adolescence as we open our thinking to encompass what research tells us is "best practice" for raising secure, safe and nurtured infants and apply that information to teen parents in out-of-home placements. This class will also include information on the shared responsibility plan, attachment and the care of the newborn, legal issues, safety issues and resources to help the teen parent as well as the RFA caregiver. Once you complete the series you meet the requirements to receive the stipend for being a WFFH mentor. We will be recording these ZOOM classes to be available for future participants interested in becoming a WFFH.

NO Drama Discipline (2 hours) Tuesday, October 12, 2021

No Drama Discipline unlocks the secrets of discipline; what works and what does not, and why - and what to do when you are pulling your hair out. We will discuss the insights and techniques to make you a better parent as written by Dan Siegel and Tina Bryson in the book, No-Drama Discipline.
Upstairs versus downstairs brains: When parents react to misbehavior with immediate consequences and this-then-that sequences, it over-simplifies everything. The authors refer to this as engaging the kid’s instinctive “downstairs brain,” whereas reacting by asking questions engages the rational “upstairs brain.” The metaphor reduces the most complex part of your kid’s biology to a dollhouse, but it is a whole lot easier to understand than the actual neuroscience.

Achieving Cultural Humility and Awareness to meet our Youth’s Diverse Needs (2 hours) Wednesday, October 13, 2021

Our youth come from diverse cultural and ethnic backgrounds. Our basic assumption is cultural and ethnicity will predispose us to behave in specific ways. In order to provide for the children in our care, we must understand specific concepts, some of these differences that manifest as a result of the social environment, including culture, ethnicity, economics, and language. We must also be willing to look at ourselves from a cultural perspective to embrace the culture of others. Despite how we look, every individual present with a personal history, a unique personality, and a way of being in the world. Children in foster care are no exception to this rule and because of this, it is important that caregivers be willing to explore the varying possibilities so that the needs of our youth are met.

New Nurtured Heart Series: (Series Total: 6 Hours) Wednesdays, October 13, 20 & 27, 2021

The Nurtured Heart Approach ((NHA)) is an amazing set of strategies developed specifically for children with challenging behaviors. Often parents have tried many parenting techniques only to become discouraged when they do not work well.

Children whose parents learn to energize them are much more likely to do well in school; have healthy self- esteem; exhibit empathy and pro-social behavior; and avoid high-risk activities such as drug use, truancy, and criminal activity. Our objective is to see you have a positive relationship with your kids
