Nurturing Parenting Program: Parents and School-Age Children (5-11 Years)

This is a 15-session group-based program. Parents and children increase their empathy, learn nurturing ways to encourage appropriate behaviors, build self-concept and self-esteem, and learn to have fun as a family. This program was validated twice in each of six sites around the country with families identified as abusive and neglecting.
