(Funding Opportunity) Parent Child CARE (PC-CARE) Pilot: A Brief Intervention for Forcibly Displaced Caregivers and Children

The Center for Adjustment, Resilience, and Recovery (CARRE) and the University of California Davis (UCDavis) are pleased to announce a request for expressions of interest for the “Parent Child CARE (PC-CARE) Pilot Project: A Brief Intervention for Caregivers and Children Together.” This is a pilot that supports the development of quality mental health and psychosocial support services for children and families who have experienced forced displacement (refugees, asylum-seekers, immigrants, etc.) through the implementation of PC-CARE. You can access the full expression of interest details and register to join an information session below.

What is PC CARE?

PC-CARE is a 7-session individual treatment program for caregivers with at least one child between the ages of 1 and 10 years that provides support and skill building opportunities to strengthen the caregiver-child relationship, build upon children’s strengths, and learn new child behavior management strategies. Participants are families who have experienced a traumatic event, may be adjusting to a new home or environment, and/or may be exhibiting behaviors that are challenging to the parent/caregiver.
