Strengthening Families Program
The Strengthening Families Program (SFP) is a group-based program that aims at improving communication, problem solving, and strengthening the overall bonding within the family unit. Parents will receive support in implementing effective discipline, developing healthier routines, how to effectively support children in their day to day life at school and with their peers, improve communication skills, and in creating healthier relationships with children while decreasing parental stress. The program teaches emotional self regulation, improves communication skills and relationships with parents and peers, increasing youth peer refusal skills, and reduces the likelihood of future intentions of underage alcohol and drug use.
Life skills Training
A substance abuse and violence prevention program for 5th and 6th graders, based on more than 35 years of rigorous scientific research. Proven to be the most effective evidence-based program used in schools today. Developmentally designed to promote positive youth development. In addition to helping kids resist drug, alcohol, and tobacco use, the Life Skills Training Middle School program also effectively supports the reduction of violence and other high-risk behaviors.
