Training Curriculum

The Casey Foundation and the Justice Resource Institute developed ARC Reflections, a training curriculum to develop foster parents and caregivers’ understanding of traumatic stress, increase their own emotional regulation and provide tools to support their parenting skills. The case manager guide provides case managers information to support foster parents learning ARC Reflections concepts and strategies.

In addition to the case manager's guide, the ARC Reflections curriculum includes detailed facilitator guides, training presentations, handouts, facilitator welcome guide, Olivia’s story, sample pre- and post-surveys and feedback forms.
