Parent Training Groups
Parents form an integral part of Summit's STP by participating in weekly group meetings. These meetings utilize a multimedia approach and lively discussions to promote maintenace of treatment gains, reduce parental stress, and improve the parent-child relationship. Each week, parenting techniques are introduced that have been proven to improve children's behavior in the home setting. School functioning and advocacy are also emphasized. These meetings take place one evening per week. Childcare is provided for the child and all siblings over the age of three so that all interested caregivers have the opportunity to attend.
