What is it?

  • A 8 to 16-week parent training program (the number of weeks depend on which state the parent resides in) designed specifically for parents of strong-willed or out-of-control adolescent children.

  • The curriculum teaches concrete identification, prevention, 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 attend and learn in a classroom setting to manage teen behavior problems at home.

  • An activity based 216-page workbook, “A Parent’s Guide to Changing Destructive Adolescent Behavior,” is available only to program participants.

  • Parents meet one time per week, two to three hours per session, for between 10 - 16 weeks.

  • Parent support groups are formed using the UCLA Self-Help Support Group Model.

  • Program orientation:  behavior modification.
