Loving Intervention for Family Enrichment
What is LIFE?
The LIFE Program works with parents and children to improve the quality of the parent-child relationship and teach parents the skills necessary to manage their child's behavioral challenges.
How does LIFE work?
There are three parts to LIFE. First, is the parenting skills class/support group, which utilizes the Award Winning Parent Project curriculum. This class is offered in English and Spanish. Second, are the youth mental health groups utilized to: develop life skills, improve academic performance, build self-esteem, increase cooperation, manage anger, improve social skills and identify positive leisure activities. Finally, the third component is the multi-family groups during which parents and children are brought together to improve family communication, increase family problem solving and conflict resolution skills, and engage in fun family activities.
