Strengthening Families

Strengthening Families is an internationally recognized program that provides family skills training to parents and children who are at risk for substance-use. The program aims to promote positive relationships and social activities while decreasing the risk of adverse behaviours in the future.

The Strengthening Families Program is led by NB Social Pediatrics employees, PCAP employees, and community volunteers who have successfully completed the Strengthening Families training.

Each week begins with a family-style meal for all participants. Family mealtime may not be a common occurrence for many participating families, so it is an important opportunity for families to come together and build connections while practicing skills learned during previous weeks.

Following the meal, parents and children separate into two groups to focus on their specific learning outcomes for the week. They then come together for a family session where they can practice what they have just learned.
