This counseling group is similar in content to our other men's groups, except with a parenting class interwoven within the curriculum. This is an especially appropriate group for men who have struggled with parenting issues, as well as those fathers who are parenting but are not currently in a romantic relationship.
Learn effective parenting skills and styles, non-abusive parenting tools, and how domestic violence affects children.
The hybrid counseling program is one group each week. The parenting class is 12 sessions, every other week, but the entire program is a minimum of 36 group sessions to acheive formal program completion.
Our Respectful Parenting program covers a variety of topics, including:
Impact of domestic violence upon children
Non-abusive parenting tools
Goals of misbehavior and effective parenting responses
Safe and respectful discipline
Listening to children's feelings
Helping children learn to care for their own feelings
Coping non-abusively with parenting stressors
Creating and maintaining a safety plan to remain non-abusive as a parent.
