Family Connections

Family Connections is a collaborative program that invites all families with children in selected grades at partnering schools (or a community setting, such as Batavia Apartments) to participate.  Students, along with their families, participate in a team-led program to enhance family communication skills, positive habits, and attitudes of respect transferable to the home, the school, and the community.  Weekly meetings establish or enhance routines of family meals, discussions of feelings, and playful activities.

 

International Child Development Program

The ICDP is a series of parents’ interactive learning groups and related children’s activity groups that promote practical and effective strategies to enhance parent-child relationships, self-esteem, and self-control through routine, daily interactions

Supportive discussions and activities throughout the program challenge all participants (including the community-based facilitators) to interact with family members thoughtfully and with empathy to enhance loving families and to help children become strong learners and leaders.

The International Child Development Program is a program for parents and/or other adults who take care of children up to 12 years old.  Discussions and activities focus on guidelines for empathetic interactions with children to help them develop socially, emotionally, and behaviorally.  Children may be invited to participate in activities that complement the curriculum.  ICDP is offered locally by TriCity Family Services using program materials adapted for the USA by the Changing Children’s Worlds Foundation.

 

Project Self-Compassion

This skill-building group is designed for high school girls interested in cultivating inner strength, improving emotional resiliency, increasing self-awareness, and learning how to better manage relationships.  Supportive meetings will challenge participants to grow through activities and discussions.

 

Smart Choices Kindergarten-5th Grade

Smart Choices Kindergarten-5th Grade is a four or six-session group workshop for children and their parents that teaches the necessary skills to effectively communicate needs, manage anger, and resolve conflicts at home, in the community, and at school.  Child-friendly activities provide opportunities to practice using “I” statements, understanding other points of view, compromising and sharing, calming techniques, and responding to teasing.

 

Smart Choices Middle School/High School

Smart Choices Middle School/High School is a four-session workshop for teens and their parents that teaches participants conflict-resolution skills, anger-management tools, and alternatives to a potential cycle of violent behavior.  In some cases, the program can be used as an alternative to school suspension.
