NPAC is excited to announce its first NTDC parent cohort starting the second week of September! The National Training and Development Curriculum, or NTDC, is a robust curriculum developed by C.A.S.E. andseveral nationwide partners to meet a wide range of needs faced by foster and adoptive families. This cohort will be open to currently enrolled, or recently discharged, NPAC families, and the group will run for 7 consecutive weeks.

The group will cover the following themes:

  • Child Development
  • Attachment
  • Separation, Grief, and Loss
  • Trauma Related Behaviors
  • Trauma-Informed Parenting
  • Effective Communication

Each group will feature materials created for adoptive families and will include time for reflection and discussion. The group will be led by two post-adoption support coaches from NPAC: Lauren DeFrese from C.A.S.E. and Lisa Grass from enCircle.

NTDC is a dynamic curriculum with something for everyone – come join this group to meet some of your fellow NPAC families and expand your parenting toolkit!
