CCWF 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!
