Summary

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. These survey materials provide pre- and post-training surveys for foster parents and feedback forms for facilitators. These materials can be used to review the effectiveness of ARC Reflections as implemented in a child welfare agency.

In addition to the survey and feedback material, the ARC Reflections curriculum includes detailed facilitator guides, training presentations, handouts, a case manager guide, facilitator welcome guide and Olivia’s story.
