Parenting better together group program
Lethbridge, Alta. : Faculty of Education
Parenting Better Together is an eight-week psycho-educational group counselling program designed to decrease the risk for child maltreatment and apprehension in families headed by single mothers who have intellectual disabilities. Based on a literature review that identified best practices for serving the needs of vulnerable and single parents with and without intellectual disabilities, the Parenting Better Together Group Program was developed to provide single mothers the opportunity to share common concerns, develop relationships, learn from one another, practice stress management techniques, and learn about parenting strategies. A group leader’s guide is provided for organizing, marketing, and facilitating the Parenting Better Together Group Program.
