Family Check-Up & Everyday Parenting
Family Check-Up was designed to reduce child behavior problems, reduce childhood depression, reduce adolescent substance use, improve school adjustment and self-regulation, and increase positive parenting.
The Family Check-Up has 3 main components:
An initial interview to explore parental strengths and challenges related to parenting and the family context;
A family assessment that includes parent and child questionnaires and a videotaped observation of family interactions;
Tailored feedback that involves reviewing assessment results and discussing follow-up service options for the family.
Follow-up services may include the Everyday Parenting program, which is a parenting management program that we provide here at TKTC.
Family Check-Up has been found to be one of the most cost-effective, "well supported" evidence-based practice across the widest age group of 2-17 and is backed by almost 30 years of research.
Family Check-Up is an empirically supported intervention with the goal of promoting healthy child development.
Family Check-Up focuses on the specific needs and strengths of each family. It provides parents with the tools that they need to manage their children’s behaviors effectively and to build a strong and positive relationship with their children.
Everyday Parenting builds on the Family Check-Up and is designed as a companion program for the Family Check-Up. When used together, parents who wish to improve their parenting and family management skills can work with their Family Check-Up provider to address those goals after completing the Family Check-Up.
The Everyday Parenting program is a research-based family management training program that addresses three main skill areas:
Supporting positive behavior
Setting healthy limits
And building family relationships
