Foster and Adoptive Parents/Caregivers

Welcome to CTR. We understand that for many children, abuse, neglect, and complex trauma has greatly impacted every aspect of their lives. As parents, caregivers, foster parents, and adoptive parents, you witness the daily effects of this. We see you as the most important people in their care.

We know you pour your time, energy, and love into such kids, and that you represent their best chance for a successful life. We also know it can be frustrating, exhausting, and confusing. Our goal is to offer enough information about complex trauma to give you a different perspective, and to offer you practical and proven strategies that will help the kids in your care to heal and grow.
