Three (3.0) CEU’s
The Prevention Model training presents a brief, 5-session curriculum for parents of at-risk children (jeopardy of school transfer, hospitalization, or juvenile justice involvement). This practice is designed to protect the parent against stressors occurring in their lives which could affect their personal functioning and that of their child. The process of identifying clients, receiving referrals, engagement of parents, using the materials, and helping the parents develop skills will be included. The Practitioner Manual will be included in the training and the costs. Parent Manuals (in either English or Spanish) are available after the training for extra costs.
