Family Training (FT)

Parenting is one of the most difficult tasks that we face. While most of us receive training in our occupations, we receive little guidance on how to be a parent and nurture development in our children. Parents are the primary change agent in their children’s development and behavior. Our family training program focuses on the parent-child relationship. Using evidence based principles, parents are coached through 5 skill-building exercises. These exercises provide parents with an opportunity to practice attending to socially desired behaviors, while learning how to re-direct and give less attention to unwanted behaviors. This positive parenting approach, centered on play and parent-child bonding, encourages social-emotional development, listening skills, learning and play skills.
