Facilitator Trainee Workshop
CCWF trains service providers as Facilitators of the
International Child/Parenting Development Program (ICDP-USA) of Parenting Learning Groups,
which support families to strengthen their parent-child interaction.
“The Best Start” is an evidence-based program which strengthens psycho-social competencies of professionals working with parents and caregivers in their practice, as well as in their facilitation of
Parent Learning Groups.
The program curriculum covers strengthening Parent + Child skills from Empathy to
Social/Emotional Learning to Cognitive Development to Self-Regulation/Discipline.
Facilitators help parents share experiences and enjoy learning from one another
as they practice implementing the ICDP 8 Guidelines by modeling positive adult-child (and adult-adult) behaviors, communications, interactions, and relationships. As parents gain confidence and empowerment, they support their children's positive development and
success in family, school, and community.
The trauma-informed, community- based program is adapted and
effective for all Parents/Caregivers and Families!
• Increased self-insight, understanding and awareness on the part of the
caregivers for the positive qualities of care that should and could exist
between them and the child.
• A stronger sense of self-confidence in their roles as caregivers.
• Empathy-based communication with their children as they better
understand their children's point of view, feelings and intentions.
• Improved skills in observing and understanding their children's reactions.
• Reduced Psychological Aggression.
• Reduced Physical Abuse.
