Rainbow of Love offers PRIDE (Parent Resources of Information, Development and Education) Training for adoptive families who are adopting from the state foster care system.
More about the Training
Our foster parent training is designed to better prepare the adoptive parents for the realities (i.e. trauma, both physical and mental) that most children in the foster care system have experienced. Mini-PRIDE will touch on the following topics:
– Separation and attachment
– Importance of the birth, extended, and temporary families
– The needs for children to maintain sibling contact and birth family connection
– The dynamics and impact of abuse and neglect on children and their development
– The behavior exhibited, sexuality and its manifestation in children who have experienced the trauma of abuse and neglect
– Age-appropriate, non-physical discipline and agreement to abide by the CPS policy
– Use of community resources
– Health, disabilities, and developing positive family attitudes
The Pride Training and certification are a requirement for state adoption. It is an 8 session course or adoption only applicants can complete mini PRIDE in 8-hours. PRIDE will greatly benefit and help adoptive parents understand the responsibility involved with adopting from the state foster care system.
