LP Strengthening Families Program (SFP) 2-Day Training 2017
The Strengthening Families Program (SFP) is a parenting curriculum geared toward prevention and early intervention of emotional and behavioral problems. An extensive body of clinical research supports the efficacy of the SFP program, demonstrating an increase in children’s sense of well-being and an improvement in child-parent relationships. While enhancing existing family support systems, SFP also identifies needs and offers practical approaches to common problems. It addresses issues of emotional regulation, bonding, attachment, resiliency, and the importance of supporting children during the transitional years. SFP provides structured lessons and materials to teach and improve skills, and also highlights the instructors’ use of modeling behavior. Components of the model include: Reinforcing good behavior, recognizing feelings, dealing with criticism, coping with anger, family meetings, communication, problem solving, and setting limits. Parents and children participate both separately and together.
