Center for Reflective Communities
The Center for Reflective Communities (CRC) provides early intervention and parent training to enhance relationships between children and caregivers, leading to greater school readiness, increased academic achievement, and more productive lives.
CRC is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization founded by Paulene Popek, PhD and Regina Pally, MD in 2008. Motivated by the research that shows children do better throughout their lives when they have a strong attachment relationship with a caregiver, and the caregiver is able to be reflective and think about the meaning that underlies behavior, CRC developed three programs to enhance reflective thinking in all those who care for children.
