Recognizing the immense need for evidence-based training, the CAP Center and its international agency, Lift the Children, develop education and training programs for our partners and other professionals working in child abuse and neglect prevention. At the request of both small NGOs and large international agencies, including UNICEF and World Learning, we have trained staff in hospitals, family resource centers, shelters for victims of human trafficking, government social service agencies, and family style homes for children deprived of parental care. Funding, training and technical assistance delivered at our Sacramento headquarters and abroad have helped our partners and other child welfare professionals develop new materials and adapt and replicate innovative child and family services designed to keep families together and children safe and out of institutions.
The training and development we provide is based on three core principles:
Competency-based Training: Training and technical assistance should be geared toward building the knowledge, skills and behaviors needed to provide quality family and child support services.
Tailored curricula: The adage that “one size fits all” is not true for training. While the concepts and information may be the same for two different organizations, the examples, delivery method, language, and key objectives must be tailored to the needs and culture of those being trained. We assess these individual needs prior to any training workshop.
Long Term Access: Our support goes beyond the delivery of a workshop. Lift the Children strives to build long-term partnerships by making our staff, resources, and materials available beyond the training period.
