Become a Trainer

We now have one Trainer "Intensive" for two evidence-based training programs

  • Reaching IN...Reaching OUT (RIRO) (for service providers working with children under 8 years and their families)
  • Bounce Back & Thrive! (BBT) (for parents with children under 8)

Our NEW Trainer Intensive Program will prepare participants to deliver RIRO and BBT resiliency skills training within their organizations and communities. In addition to advanced level training, the Trainer Intensive Program provides:

  • a comprehensive set of materials that equip trainers to market and provide the resiliency skills training programs to service providers and parents;
  • follow-up consultation to support trainers as they initiate and deliver the skills training in their communities.
