Training 

 

PRIDE® 

All future families of Embrace are required to complete 24 hours of Pre-Service Training, also called PRIDE. This training is based on the philosophy that the value of family life for children; however family is defined, is compelling. Because of this, knowledgeable and skilled foster and adoptive parents are integral to providing quality services. 

CPR/First Aid

In partnership with the American Red Cross, all our foster parents receive CPR/First aid training and certification, allowing them to respond to cardiac, breathing, and common first aid emergencies.

 

CPI

All foster parents will go through Nonviolent Crisis Intervention training designed by the Crisis Prevention Institute (CPI). The standard for crisis prevention and intervention training for over 35 years, the CPI equips our parents with proven strategies for safely defusing any anxious or hostile behavior in their foster children at the earliest possible stage.

 

LOVE AND LOGIC® 

Love and Logic provides simple and practical techniques to help parents with kids of all ages. This parenting tool course will ensure that our familiars can raise responsible kids, have more fun in their role and easily and immediately change their children's behavior.
