Books and Videos

Agencies allow foster parents to have a certain percentage of their annual training hours come from self-paced activities. You will have to check with your agency for the specific details on what is allowed. The most common way to meet these hours is by reading books. The following books (except for No-Drama Discipline and Brainstorm) are all required reading for those taking the Empowered to Connect course. All of the books are available for purchase through our ONLINE STORE.

The Connected Child – Purvis, Cross, Sunshine 234 pages
The Whole-Brain Child – Siegel, Bryson 165 pages
No-Drama Discipline – Siegel, Bryson 244 pages
