Positive Solutions for Families- FREE parenting series for Preschool Parents

Positive Solutions for Families is an evidence-informed seven part series of workgroups.  Parents and caregivers will learn how to use positive approaches and effective parenting techniques to improve interactions with their child(ren), which in turn will support social and emotional development and address challenging behaviors.

The courses are offered in English and Spanish.  Each session builds on the previous so it is encouraged that interested families attend all workshops.  Space is limited and materials are provided ahead of time, so families are encouraged to register early.  Sessions will be weekly on Thursdays from 5:00-6:30 via TEAMS beginning on 2/2/23.  Please click on the attached flyer if interested.
