(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.

What is this collaborative session about?
Join us for a special collaborative session held jointly by the School Crisis Recovery and Renewal project and CARRE (two National Child Traumatic Stress Network Category II sites) to create space for service providers (based in schools or community) who want to engage in the practice of attuning and attending to our emotional landscape as we witness institutionally sanctioned and unprecedented death and violence. Further event details can be found hereThis event will not be recorded.

Why should you attend?

  • Engage in community valued, trauma informed regulation strategies that positively impact the process of recovery and renewal.
  • Imagine new ways of incorporating recovery and renewal activities into therapeutic intervention, classrooms and curriculum, peer and student interactions, meeting structures and personal lives.
  • Identify individual and collective protective factors, community assets and stressors, significant loss, trauma and opportunities for growth.
  • Build community capacity and peer support to respond to mental health needs in forcibly displaced communities.

Who should attend?
