The National Child Traumatic Stress Network has created a series of trainings for foster parents about working with youth who have experienced trauma. CFCS and Communities for People (CFP) have been awarded a grant to provide this training. All CFCS foster care program staff have been trained and we expect that all CFCS foster parents will be trained over the next year.

This curriculum provides specifics for addressing challenging behaviors and how to understand the youth in your home.
