TIPS for tuning in uses a 1980’s Boombox analogy to help providers and caregivers with recall and learning transfer while building a combination of trauma responsive, relationship building, and behavior management skills that can be used across home, schools, and childcare. 

The training program builds on evidence-informed behavioral parenting programs such as Helping the Non-Compliant Child and PCIT while including relationship building skills similar to those in Child and Adult Relationship Enhancement. Research findings demonstrated improvements in a number of dimensions that have been correlated with well-being for children including parenting self-efficacy, and child behavior outcomes

This focused session will provide participants with hands-on skill building TIPS around increasing positive attachment and enhancing relationships with children with trauma histories. TIPS aims to provide skills to help you TUNE IN, enhance resilience, and minimize behaviors.
