Enhancing Developmental Relationships within Therapeutic Campus Based and Community Group Care Programs

Session May 28, 2024

The collective experiences of children who have relational deficits are enriched through multiple, authentic staff/child interactions. In this interactive session we propose that the “active ingredients” of Connection, Reciprocity, Opportunities to Grow and Inclusion have a positive and enduring impact on relationally resistant children and youth.
