General Information

Summary Paragraph

The curriculum is unique among parenting and family programs because it was developed specifically for children in high-risk families (in the initial trial, alcohol and drug-abusing parents). The program developers believed that to reduce risk factors in children of higher-risk families, it was essential to improve the family environment and parents' abilities to bond with, provide structure for, and guide their children. Consequently, the program developers created a parenting class, as well as a children's life skills class, and a family skills class for parents and children to practice together. All three classes are taught together in 14 weekly sessions.

Curriculum Purpose

The curriculum was designed to reduce environmental risk factors and improve protective factors with the ultimate objective of increasing more capable parents, healthier families, and personal resilience to drug use and other risky behavior in high-risk youth.
