We offer educational classes that include The Trauma Competent Caregiver (TCC) curriculum which is a training series that is evidenced-based and rooted in a biblical foundation. It is designed to equip those involved in caring for children with the knowledge and skills God uses to help children grow into what they were created to be.
Parents, caregivers, child providers and teachers know there is great honor and privilege in bringing up children but it is also realized that in today's world children are facing more struggles than ever before so it comes with the responsibility of competently caring for their unique needs amidst the tremendous joys and great challenges that accompany day-to-day life. Trauma in whatever form it may come in has the potential to profoundly impact a child’s development in all areas, altering the child’s biology, beliefs, and behavior. TCC can equip those in caregiving roles to stand in the gap to promote healing and restoration in the lives of the children we are caring for.
The TCC training provides caregivers with the tools they need to be more than just compassionate for the children they are serving. Caregivers are equipped with tools that allow them to serve as competently compassionate caregivers. There’s an important difference between being compassionate and being competently compassionate. Being compassionate simply means that one has a feeling of compassion or sympathy for another. Competently compassionate caregivers, however, feel compassion for those they are serving AND they demonstrate the skills, knowledge, abilities, and qualifications needed to care for children with a traumatic history. They are equipped with the intentional caregiving strategies needed to bring healing and restoration to children.
The Trauma Competent Caregiver curriculum will help us to minister to the children we raise and care for in a way that gives them the best chance of a bright future.
