What is the Parent Project?
It is a 10- to 16-week parent training program designed specifically for parents of strong-willed or out-of-control adolescent children.
- The curriculum teaches concrete prevention, identification and intervention strategies for the most destructive of adolescent behaviors (poor school attendance and performance, alcohol and other drug use, gangs, runaways and violent teens).
How does it work?
Parents meet one night per week, two to three hours per night, for 10 to 16 weeks.
- Parents attend and learn in a classroom model to manage teen behavior problems at home.
- Parents receive and work within an activity-based 216 -age curriculum, "A Parent's Guide to Changing Destructive Adolescent Behavior," available only to program participants.
- Parent support groups are formed using the UCLA self-help support group model.
- The program's orientation is behavior modification.
