Nurturing Parent Programs
The Nurturing Parent Programs are cost effective, validated, family centered programs that have proven effectiveness in treating and preventing the recurrence of child abuse and neglect. Since 1983 the Nurturing Programs have been helping families learn new attitudes and skills designed to reduce family dysfunction.
The Nurturing Parenting Programs are a family-centered trauma-informed initiative designed to build nurturing parenting skills as an alternative to abusive and neglecting parenting and child-rearing practices.
The long term goals are to prevent recidivism in families receiving social services, lower the rate of multi-parent teenage pregnancies, reduce the rate of juvenile delinquency and alcohol abuse, and stop the intergenerational cycle of child abuse by teaching positive parenting behaviors.
