Description: This informative workshop uses fun games and activities to teach foster parents at least twenty practical language and action skills for building children’s self‐esteem. Parents learn the diﬀerence between praise and encouragement and how to build self‐esteem without creating “praise junkies or egotistical self‐centered children. These techniques also increase children’s confidence and resistance to peer pressure and can prevent and diﬀuse sibling rivalry and competition.

The Foster-Adoptive Parents Toolshop® training series is a comprehensive 30+ hour evidence-based, trauma informed parenting curriculum for foster and kinship caregivers and adoptive parents. The entire series will be oﬀered over the next 8 months, September 2022, June 2023 and will be taught by the curriculum’s author Jody Johnston Pawel, LSW, CFLE, CTSS.
While each individual workshop is valuable as a stand-alone workshop, when combined they create a parenting system called The Universal Blueprint® for Parenting Success. You can use this universal system to prevent common parenting challenges and plan personalized responses and solutions to those that arise, based on the child, circumstance, and family involved. The series oﬀers an overview of the system and its tools, plus the in-depth workshops in order, so they build on each other.
Don’t worry if you can’t take them all, you can take one, some or as many as you wish! The Series will be oﬀered on the 2nd and 4th Mondays from September 2022 to June 2023 from 3-6pm. Please note there are some 2- part trainings. You must attend both sessions to get credit.
