CCWF's vision is for every child and adolescent to have a strong network of caregivers engaged in supporting their positive development in nonviolent families and peaceful communities.
We are a program that trains parents, children, and caregiver facilitators to implement empathy-based interactions into their daily lives. ICDP 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.

ICDP Strengthens Parent/Caregiver-Child Interactions, Families and Communities
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.
