Since 1981, Pressley Ridge has successfully trained thousands of foster parents and foster care agencies across 31 states in our competency-based curriculum. Nearly 170 agencies are currently training their staff and resource parents using the Pressley Ridge Treatment Foster Care Parent Pre-Service curriculum, which reflects many years of research, writing, and experience.
This comprehensive, competency-based program is designed to help trainers and program managers ensure a high standard of excellence in services for children and youth in foster care. After recently receiving Evidence-Based Status from the California Evidence-Based Clearinghouse for Child Welfare, it is now the only evidence-based pre-service training designed specifically for treatment foster parents.
