Clinical Research Assistant II -Part-time- PriCARE -Bilingual

Child Adult Relationship Enhancement in Pediatric Primary Care (PriCARE) is a group caregiver training program for caregivers of children ages 2-6 who have some behavioral problems. The main goals of the program are to teach these parents ways to improve their parent-child relationship while also improving their child’s behaviors. Many of our parents are single parents with limited resources. In order to help address possible barriers to attendance, during the in-person sessions within the primary care clinic we provide on-site childcare for kids ages 2-10, SEPTA tokens for transportation reimbursement, and food. As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, this intervention has been converted for virtual delivery via a secure, HIPAA-compliant platform.
To date, CHOP has only facilitated PriCARE groups in English; however, we have recently translated and culturally adapted our curriculum in order to provide these sessions to Spanish-speaking families. Each group is 6 weeks long and meets once a week for 6 consecutive weeks. Each session is 1-1.5 hours and are offered during the week either midday or at night.
