The Parent Project is nationally recognized as an evidence-based class in use all over the country for many years. Instructors are certified by the Parent Project and the curriculum is specific with lesson plans and work books provided by The Parent Project organization.
One course consists of 10 meetings. Meetings run approximately 2-3 hours. Times may vary depending on the needs of the class participants and class activities. On some occasions parents meet with the instructor after class to work on specific family concerns. Each parent has a workbook, assignments and projects. While in class they work on issues parents encounter. The class is led by a certified instructor who is trained in the curriculum. Classes are offered in English and a Spanish interpreter is available when needed.
This intervention program is designed to decrease conduct disorder, aggression, reduce truancy and improve school performance, reduce use of illegal drugs, alcohol, and tobacco, gang involvement, and domestic violence. The Parent Project utilizes an evidence-based curriculum that has shown to be effective in dramatically reducing calls for service by police when parents complete the course.
