Greetings foster/adoptive parents and caregivers!

Becoming a foster and/or adoptive parent can present unique challenges, especially when the children involved have a complex history of trauma.

The Foster Parent Training Program, housed at the UK TRC, is offering a virtual training series focused on equipping Foster/Adoptive parents and other caregivers with the information and tools required to meet the needs of these children through a trauma-informed perspective.

We hope you’ll join us for our upcoming session:

Nurturing Parenting: Communicating with Respect

Virtual via Zoom

August 30, 2022 from 10:00am-12:00pm EST

Length of Training (Hours): 2

Self-worth is the overall value people have of themselves. Self-worth consists of what people think about themselves (self-concept) and how people feel about themselves (self-esteem). Building healthy self-esteem and self-worth is important in establishing identity. It is also a major factor in developing resiliency. Building resiliency is known to counteract the effects of trauma. Carla will facilitate a Nurturing Parenting Workshop- Entitled “Building Self-Worth in Children” on August 30, 2022, from 10:00 am-12:00 pm EST to help parents and their families learn to improve parent’s and children’s self-worth and self-concept. More specifically, during this training parents will learn:

• To define self-concept, self-esteem, and self-worth.

• To realize their ability to impact a child’s overall feeling of worth.

• To define ways parents can improve their children’s self-concept, self-esteem, and self-worth.

This training will help parents learn to increase overall health and wellness for themselves and their foster youth by learning strategies to building a healthy self-worth that contributes to building resiliency.

This training is approved for 2 credit hours for ongoing, elective training credit for Kentucky foster parents. This training will be delivered in a live, interactive, virtual setting. A reliable internet connection and computer/ smartphone with webcam are required.
