ICDP Parent Program

What is CCWF's Parenting Program Curriculum?
See full map of ICDP programs with years and descriptions here

We train parents, children, and facilitators to implement empathy-based interactions into their daily lives. Our curriculum is used in parent/caregiver and child learning groups throughout the community. These groups ensure that children are supported in a positive and loving way. For further information, download our brochure here.

The International Child/Parent Development Program (ICDP) provides a comprehensive psycho-social approach to strengthening adult caregiver/parent-child relationships by modeling, facilitating, and motivating empathy and communications across the spectrum of Adult-Child interaction. Empathy provides the foundation of attitudes and values which enables caregivers to confidently experience and communicate their love as they guide the positive development of their children. Community members expand their "zone of empathy" through community-based ICDP Trainers and Facilitators of Caregivers/ Parent Learning Groups, and supplemental programming for their children.
