Caregivers in children homes are being trained to better deal with those wards who are under state care.
The training comes in the form of a workshop entitled Parenting Towards Resilience and Success, conducted at the Sterling Children’s Home in St Philip Thursday.
The over 15 workers, including some parents were empowered with unique parenting skills which the Child Care Board says are now required.
Board member, Zendorph Waithe-Ellis believes the training will provide the necessary tools to aid in the child's full development.
Mr Waithe-Ellis revealed that children who are admitted to the homes, generally present various behaviors and ongoing intervention is needed.
Director of the Child Care Board, Joan Crawford says the training will seek to fill a void and ensure that a day's work for caregivers is a fulfilling one.
