If you are taking a FAPT course, you will get access to either the original classic The Parent’s Toolshop® book or the new shorter Jump Start Guidebook, to learn the Universal Blueprint® for Parenting Success. You’ll appreciate getting special content, stories, applications and practice specifically for YOU in …

  • The Foster Parents Toolshop® Action Guide, which follows the same chapters as the universal books, offering special trauma-informed content, resources, and information to support you in the special challenges you and your children may face. It’s an ever-evolving resource, as we collect stories, examples, resources, suggestions, and additional information from trauma-informed experts and caregivers like you.
  • Our FREE Monthly Foster-Adoptive Parents Tool TALK webinar – is a chance to get 1 free hour of training each month. (2 hours, if you attend the monthly Parents Tool Talk webinar, too!) We feature interviews with trauma-informed experts, live discussions, and presentations on topics. Attend LIVE to attend free! (Nominal fee for recordings, since to offset some of the hosting/streaming/download fees.) To find out upcoming topics or share these resources, do one of the following (or tell others to!):
