Being a parent doesn’t come with an instruction manual…
We provide a variety of educational support to parents, caregivers and youth to help build stronger relationships with each other.
Our staff are trained in a variety of programming to support families and youth in our communities. Not only do we work with school administration and staff, we also extend out into helping parents and caregivers build better relationships with each other and children within the home. The goal of these efforts is to increase protective factors and reduce risk factors. By enhancing communication skills, building trust and openness, families become stronger and more resilient to things that might otherwise cause danger or conflict.
We never stop learning, right?
Here are the types of programs we offer:
Active Parenting Program (4th Edition)
This comprehensive program helps parents of children ages 5 to 12 learn to raise responsible, courageous children able to resist negative peer pressure.
Active Parenting of Teens
This program helps parents gain confidence and courage to meet the challenges (and savor the joys) of their children’s teen years.
Both programs occur in six two-hour sessions and can incorporate Group or Individual discussions.
Parenting Inside Out (PIO)
An evidence-based, cognitive-behavioral parent management skills training program that was originally created for incarcerated parents. However, this is also a great program for the community to take part in, as well!
This program is taught over the course of 12 weeks, offering (48) sessions and homework assignments.
A collection of evidence-based, trauma-informed strategies to improve cooperation and self-regulation with youth. Drawing on decades of science to create strategies that support parents, youth workers, and other caring adults to create a nurturing environment to help kids thrive!
Triple P – Positive Parenting Program
This evidence-based program is designed to help parents and caregivers with children’s behaviors as they grow. By offering simple and practical strategies, you will begin building a better relationship, confidence and trust with each other. By doing so, you are preventing rebellious decisions and behaviors.
Ages 0-12: Discussion groups occur four times and last for two hours per group. Individual Consults occur four times and last between 15 minutes – two hours.
Teenagers: Discussion groups occur four times and last for two hours per group. Individual Consults occur four times and last between 15 minutes – two hours.
Other resources we love:
SAMHSA.gov has some great publications on talking to teens about various topics regarding experimenting with substances, getting ahead of a problem, and how to find help if it’s needed.
Teens.drugabuse.gov is another one of our favorites because it speaks to science-based facts about drug use. Provides information for teens, teachers, parents and more!
Searchinstitute.org has been doing research on kids for over 40 years and their 40 Developmental Assets is our trusted resource for the way we do our work. It encourages kids to learn and thrive, while allowing them to be part of the decision-making process.
