Parenting Skills Workshop Series (PSWS)

15

This workshop is designed for professionals working with parents who may not learn well from text-based teaching approaches. The workshop manual (attached as a .pdf file) presents basic parenting skills in a hands-on learning format suitable for any level of literacy. Originally designed for court-mandated parents, this workshop has proved successful with a broad audience. The eight-week curriculum is based on themes consistent with familiar parent education programs such as STEP (Systematic Training and Effective Parenting), and PET (Parent Effectiveness Training). Each two-hour workshop becomes a setting for participants to learn new skills in a format that emphasizes action in "real" situations. "Five Basic Parenting Skills" posters and reproducible handouts, as well as a reproducible "Certificate of Achievement" included.
