We are committed to ensuring that our families have the training and resources necessary to thrive as a foster and adoptive family. All CK Foster and Adoptive Families are required to read The Connected Child and Wounded Children Healing Homes. You can purchase these books from Amazon and arrange for delivery to the location most convenient to you using the links below:
We also require that all families desiring to adopt purchase and have on hand, the Trust-Based Parenting DVD set. You can purchase the DVD set using the form below.
**Beginning 1/1/14, CK will require that ALL foster and adoptive families have both of the required books and the video set available in their home prior to verification and that all adoptive families read the books and complete reading reports prior to adoptive placement.**
CK Family Services believes strongly in the principles found in the books: Beyond Consequences, Logic and Control and The Whole Life Adoption Book. We want ALL our families to invest their time in reading these excellent books to enhance their understanding of children who have experienced trauma and their skills in parenting kids who come from hard places.
Families may purchase the Trust-Based Parenting DVD set by credit card using the form below or may pay by cash (exact amount) or check in-person during TPP3 Preservice Training.
