Restorative Approach and Risking Connection for Foster Parents 

The Restorative Approach (RA) Basic, RA Train-the-Trainer, and Risking Connection (RC) for Foster Parents Train-the-Trainer have not appeared on our freestanding event schedule since 2019; during the pandemic we focused attention on RC training. We are bringing them back in 2022 due to popular demand, offering 3 separate trainings described below.

By attending the RA Basic training, your staff will learn the fundamentals of this trauma-informed method of working day-to-day in child group care settings. By attend the Train-the-Trainer trainings, your RC Trainers will be able teach these trainings to your staff in an ongoing way. RC Trainers can attend one, two, or all three. There are some prerequisites for the Train-the-Trainers outlined below.

Restorative Approach Basic Training

February 1, 2022 from 10-5; OPEN TO ALL

The Restorative Approach™, newly updated in 2019, is a trauma-informed alternative to traditional “point and level” systems for child congregate care settings.  Based on attachment theory and the principles of restorative justice, it answers the question, “Now that I understand how trauma affects children, what should I do on Monday?”

The Restorative Approach translates what we know about trauma, the brain, and how children heal into specific strategies for all treatment providers within the organization. When children display behaviors that hurt others and the community, rather than “doing time” or dropping levels, staff assigns learning and restorative tasks to help children learn skills and make amends. 

This training will cover:

  • Theory Behind the RA including Principles of Restorative Justice
  • Healing Attachment
  • Building an RA-Informed Milieu
  • Using the Milieu to Rebuild Brains
  • Responding to Problem Behaviors: When Children Hurt Others                                            
  • Common Questions about Restorative Tasks
  • Common Resistances to RA
  • Vicarious Trauma and RA

Restorative Approach Train-the-Trainer

February 2, 2022 from 10:00-1:00 EST; OPEN ONLY TO CURRENT RC TRAINERS who have completed the full-day RA Basic Training (either here at Kllingberg or at their agency)

This training offers an intensive learning experience about how to teach the 1-Day RA training within your system, agency, or school.  During the course of training, prospective trainers are expected to practice teach to their peers and the Faculty Trainers in a supportive learning environment.  Particular focus is placed on helping participants learn how to exemplify, in their work as a trainer, the relational concept of RICH (Respect, Information, Connection and Hope) that is central to the RA approach.

RC Foster Care Train-the-Trainer

February 2, 2022 from 2-5:30 EST; OPEN ONLY TO CURRENT RC TRAINERS

This training enables RC Trainers to teach the newly-designed RC for Foster Parents training at your agency or school. In 2019 the RC for Foster Parents training was reorganized into 8 separate 90-minute modules, that can stand alone or be taught as a series during a timeframe of your choosing. RC Trainers will get exposure to the new materials, experience the exercises, and practice teaching the content. This training focuses on the unique challenges of training foster parents.

Mix-and-Match as needed, but please note the prerequisites:

  • You must be a Risking Connection Trainer to attend RA TTT or FC TTT; RC TTT is the foundation
  • RA Basic is a prerequisite to the RA TTT
  • The RA Basic is open to all with no prerequisite
  • There is no FC Basic, the only prerequisite is the RC TTT
