2 credit hours

Navigating the teen years can be challenging. It is even more difficult for youth that have experienced trauma. The University of Kentucky in collaboration with DCBS, will offer training to equip foster and adoptive parents to meet the needs of older youth who have moderate to serious emotional and behavioral health challenges.

Session 7 wraps up the CORE Teen Training Program. During this final session parents will continue to add to their “trauma- informed parenting suitcase.” Participants will:

  • Create healthy relationships with birth family members and other key individuals
  • Review the impact of trauma and trauma informed parenting
  • Define secondary traumatic stress
  • Identify strategies for dealing with secondary traumatic stress

This session will teach parents how to nurture and promote the well-being of their youth through trauma-informed parenting. For additional information about this session, please feel free to contact Carla Jordan, TRC Training Specialist, at carla.jordan@uky.edu or 1-833-859-3278 (1-833-UKY-FAST).


Please note each session is approved for ongoing, elective training credit for Kentucky Foster Parents. This program also meets the requirements for CarePlus Training. Basic & Advanced Foster Parents, Fictive Kin Foster Parents, Care Plus, or Therapeutic Foster Parents can all take advantage of the opportunity to fulfill their training hours. A reliable internet connection and computer/smartphone with webcam are required.
