Program Description...

    Nurturing Skills for Families contains 80 Nurturing Parenting Skill Lessons to choose from to create a parenting program for families that meets their specific needs. Competency-based instruction helps parents learn the basic skills of Nurturing Parenting, a proven evidenced based program. Instructional lessons run 60 to 90 minutes and can be taught in group-based programs, home-based programs, or a combination of group and home-based.
    The Adult-Adolescent Parenting Inventory (AAPI-2) and the Nurturing Skills Competency Scale (NSCS) are built in assessment tools to assess parenting beliefs, knowledge and skills. Measure the impact of the program with pre, post and process assessment tools. The Family Nurturing Plan (FNP) promotes a partnership between parents and professionals to work together in creating a parenting program that meets the specific needs of the family. Parents need to demonstrate competence in the Core Lessons that form the foundation of Nurturing Parenting. Increase parental commitment in attending and participating in learning Nurturing Parenting beliefs, knowledge and skills.

    Children attend separate group sessions that meet concurrently with the parents. The Lesson Guide for Children provides lessons that are complimentary to the parents. Depending on the age of the child, home based classes engage parents and child in attachment activities.
