Intensive Therapeutic Parent Education Program for at risk families
Competency Based Behavior Modification Education
In-Home Behavior Coaches

This program focuses on competency and positive functional outcome measures, ending up with long lasting changes. The intervention offers behavioral modification, proactive education with clear outcome measures and goals for individualized family success, training to competency, and application of such aspects as “safe discipline” along with applied support and role modeling to the family as a whole so that children can live in secure, healthy home environments. The intensive in-home parent training model was developed based on The Secrets of Modern ParentingTM DVD series and targeted outcome measures to evaluate its effectiveness at accomplishing the outcome measures as prescribed by both the researchers and the Community Based Care agency. The program uses Behavior Coaches as the trainers working in home with parents who are actively engaged in a case plan agreement with the Department of Children and Families in Florida. The program was implemented in one designated county in the state of Florida through a contract awarded by the CBC, Devereux, a non-profit agency charged with developing community-based services and supports for children and families served by the child welfare system. The CBC was looking to pilot a fresh and effective parent training locally and had worked extensively over a number of years with the group who was awarded the contract.
