TRIPP: Foundational Overview for Staff

This eLearning program is a video that provides Foster Care agency staff with an overview of the Trauma-Responsive and Informed Parenting Program (TRIPP). TRIPP offers a new way to understand the challenges faced by children and youth in foster care. TRIPP was created with the idea that “showing up” with a trauma-informed lens – calm, self-regulated, and emotionally responsive – encourages improvements in the child’s behavior.
