Adults, Parents, and Educators
Our programs for Adults, Parents, and Educators include:
Using a strengths-based model, we offer an array of programs that foster the development of effective parenting. The Creating Lasting Family Connections evidence-based program gives parents the tools to increase their parenting and resiliency skills. The STEP (Systematic Training for Effective Parenting) program helps parents understand their child's behavior and develop concrete skills of effective listening, constructive self-expression, decision making and problem solving, and assertive discipline.
Alcohol, Tobacco, and Drug Education and Prevention
We offer an array of educational programs. One popular offering is CHC’s Mock Teen Bedroom which teaches parents to recognize the danger signs that may indicate their child is making poor choices concerning drug and alcohol use. Our Current Drug Trends program is updated constantly so educators and parents can recognize the signs and symptoms associated with the drugs most abused in our community at any given time. The HOPE (Heroin and Opioid Prevention) program features local families who have been impacted by the worst drug crisis in U.S. history and who want other parents to know that addiction to these drugs in particular can affect any family.
Problem-Solving, Decision-Making, and Conflict Resolution
The evidence-based “Too Good for Violence” (elementary and middle school) and “Too Good for Drugs and Violence” (high school) programs train educators to help students develop good decision-making skills, build healthy relationships, handle conflict, and create positive feelings about themselves. Our Anger Management programs teach participants to recognize signs and triggers of anger, as well as learn healthy, positive ways to manage their anger. We also offer evidence-based life skills and job readiness trainings.
Parents and educators are given the tools to recognize bullying behaviors and to assist youth in understanding the differences between teasing and bullying, and what steps to take when they or someone else is being bullied. Current trends in internet bullying and tips on how adults can monitor children’s social media use are also shared.
Teambuilding, Communication Skills, and Diversity Training
We offer teambuilding programs designed to assist colleagues in better understanding each other’s strengths, weaknesses, and interests so that they can work even better towards shared goals. Our communication skills trainings are usually designed for a particular group’s needs, and include understanding the importance of non-verbal communication, gaining active listening skills and recognizing the relevance of perception in communications. Diversity training can be incorporated into either teambuilding or communication skills programs, or facilitated as a stand-alone program.
