RPC+


A Trauma-Intensive Workshop for Caregivers
A Resource Parent Curriculum that educates caregivers about the impact of trauma on the development, attachment, emotions and behaviors of the children in their care; plus guides parents in improving their relationship with their children and their ability to manage ongoing and daily challenges.


RPC+ will provide a safe space for caregivers to access compassionate training, learn concrete strategies, enhance relationships with their children and build a network of support and connections with fellow caregivers. Children will have the opportunity to spend time with their peers in a supportive and enriching environment designed to increase emotional regulation and a sense of competency.

The groups will incorporate neuro biological (“patterned, repetitive rhythmic somatosensory”) activities such as drumming, therapeutic art/music, yoga, dance and/or mediation to increase competency and improve self regulation.
