Designed for families referred for parenting education by Mental Health/Social Services.

Tertiary Prevention-Treatment




Prevention-Treatment Programs are designed for families referred for parenting education by Social Services/Mental Health for child abuse and neglect and/or family dysfunction. Tertiary level programs "treat" abusive and neglecting parent-child or parent-teen dysfunctional interactions through a process called "re-parenting." In re-parenting, parents increase their understanding of the abuse and neglect they experienced as children and how these parenting beliefs and patterns were passed on to their children.
