iCARE COLLABORATIVE

DISSEMINATION MODEL

CARE provides a set of skills intended to improve child-adult relationships. Therefore, each training level keeps the primary target (children/teens and by extension, their families) as the core to its dissemination efforts. We are mindful of how many degrees of separation come between those who are using and teaching care, and the families we serve. While the aim of CARE is to directly equip adults with powerful relationship skills, the iCARE Collaborative supports agencies in developing within-agency expertise and sustainability with a CARE Coach and/or CARE Facilitator pathway for the General CARE model.
