Virtual Trainings

Educating the mind without educating the heart is no education at all.

~ Aristotle

Due to current circumstances the Rainbow Days Training Division is offering The CBSG Program Facilitator Training and a variety of workshops via the Zoom platform. These virtual continuing education workshops give professionals the opportunity to enhance their career and professional skills and receive required CEUs. Through innovative and practical learning experiences individuals, organizations, schools and communities are better equipped to create positive change in their sphere of influence.


Rainbow Days Training Division is the sole provider of Curriculum-Based Support Group (CBSG®) Program. Rainbow Days, Inc., founded in 1982, is the developer of the evidence-based Curriculum-Based Support Group (CBSG®) Program. The CBSG® Program is an effective antidote designed to increase resilience in children and youth who experience adversity, trauma, and toxic stress through the development of healthy social, emotional, and coping skills in a caring support group setting. In a safe and confidential small group setting (6 to 12 participants) caring adults support children and youth as they learn and apply the social, emotional and coping skills needed to increase their self and social awareness and competence, enhance relationship skills, practice responsible decision making, and have a sense of purpose and future.

The CBSG® Program is effective for both Selective and Indicated populations and works well in multiple settings including schools, juvenile justice settings, community organizations, transitional living settings, homeless & domestic violence settings, church and faith based organizations, recreation centers, after-school programs, apartment programs, summer camps, and many more. More than 22,000 have been trained as CBSG® Program Facilitators from 44 states as well as PeaceCorps Volunteers in Ecuador and school and community leaders in England.

Four Facilitator Manual Adaptations are available to meet the specific age and setting requirements. All group participant handouts and activities are available in English and Spanish on a USB. Attendance at a one-day training is required to be a CBSG® Program Facilitator and receive one Facilitator Manual Adaptation.
