The Parent Empowering Education Group and the Parent Support Group seek to empower parents, reduce families’ dependence on counseling, and provide them with the tools they need to maintain a more productive family environment after they’ve stopped receiving SBY services. The Parent Empowerment Education Group is a 10-week group that uses a skills-based approach which fosters optimism and hope by allowing families to see problems as skill excesses and deficits, rather than personal failings. The support offered by other parents each week in the year-long Parent Support Group offers a forum for discussion of various topics and builds parent resources for each participant.
