About this training:

Are meltdowns, tantrums and unpredictable outbursts the norm in your home? Do the typical conflicts of family life spin-out into total chaos? When your child has challenges with emotional regulation, life can feel like a roller coaster ride.

Join Harmony Family Center’s Education and Training Coordinator and mom of four in a frank, hour long dialogue exploring effective strategies for de-escalating your child’s reactivity and bringing more enjoyment, peace, and order to your family life.

Working with the Education System

Click HERE to complete the training! This is a one-time requirement, mandatory within the first year of fostering. If you have completed a previous version of this course (CBT or classroom), you do NOT need to take the updated training.

The Office of Training and Professional Development offers learning opportunities to assist current adoptive, foster, and kinship parents in support their efforts to provide a safe, nurturing, loving environment for the children in their care.

We also provide pre-approval training for prospective foster parents, in partnership with Harmony Family Center and New Vision, Inc.
