Core teen is a curriculum for caregivers of children who have experienced trauma. This cutting edge curriculum is designed to prepare caregivers to meet the unique needs of children and add new parenting strategies. This class fulfills the current requirement for Level A (Behavioral Foster Parent) licensure but can be taken for training purposes only.   Please note, all individuals on the license must complete the course to apply for Level A licensure.  Completion of the training does not guarantee Level A approval. 

We will meet seven consecutive Saturday mornings from 9:00 AM to 12:00 PM, beginning on January 6, 2024 and ending February 17, 2024.  You must attend all 7 sessions to receive the 21 hours of credit for the class. Make up sessions will be available but no partial credit will be given.
