CASA GRANDE — The Casa Grande Alliance is offering a free workshop series, Strong Families, to area residents.
The Strengthening Families Program is for parents and their children, ages 10 to 14. It is a universal, evidence-based, family prevention program developed and distributed through Iowa State University. The next free workshop series begins Tuesday, Oct. 22.
The program consists of seven interactive, video-based sessions conducted over consecutive weeks. Sessions usually start with a family meal with all participating families and facilitators.
After the meal, during the first hour of each session, parents and youths meet separately. During the second hour, the youths and parents participate together as families to practice new skills they have learned, play games and do family projects.
The program is designed to:
enhance parenting skills and empathy and promote effective parenting styles.
build decision-making and life skills in youths, including stress management, conflict resolution, peer resistance and empathy.
