Who is This For?

  • Foster - Adoptive Parents

    Caring for a child who has experienced trauma in the form of abuse, neglect or maltreatment is not easy. But you have signed up for that. It takes courage and inner strength to be able to identify needs and create environments that will bring healing to these children. Our classes will give you that to build your confidence and prevent disruption.

  • Educators

    You are the heroes who work every day to help children learn and grow into healthy citizens. But we also know that not every child is going to respond to the same type of teaching. Some come from hard places and need extra grace. These courses will help you as an educator to be able to identify and provide solutions for children who may come from difficult backgrounds.

  • Professionals

    You have studied and spent time in the field putting the hard work in to help at-risk children. You sacrifice and give every day. Yet, at times you wish you had more practical ideas and information to reinforce what you do to help children. These courses will do just that.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • Will I receive a certificate of completion for the course?

    Yes! Every course comes with a certificate of completion that meets the requirements of the Arizona Department of Child Safety and many other state welfare agencies. This certificate will have the learner's name, the title of the course, the credit hours, and the date of completion.

  • Can I watch the courses together with my spouse or do we each have to have our own log in?

    Just like our in-person courses, the pricing is based per participant. Each purchase should be logged under an individual’s name, and only that name will be tied to the proof of participation.

  • What is the format of the course content?

    Each of the courses are made up of a variety of modules with lessons within each. These lessons are made up of short videos to watch. Learners must complete the video before they can advance to the next lesson. There is also a variety of “process questions” throughout each lesson to help learners apply lessons from the videos. Each learner must also complete a final assessment quiz to receive a certificate.

  • Can I interact with other people/instructors in the course?

    Yes! Each lesson has a forum where learners can either post or answer a question for discussion to keep the learning going.
