The S.T.E.P. Program
Are you concerned about the way things are going at home with your teenager?
Adolescence can be a difficult, challenging time of change – even rebellion.
We have proven methods to create positive change in your parent-child relationship.
Generally, parents learn to parent from the way they were raised – or they react and go to the opposite extreme. Either approach can be problematic, resulting in negative and serious consequences including the following:
- Poor communication at home
- Aggressive and violent attitudes and behaviors by teens
- Unhealthy behavior patterns, such as substance use, poor nutrition, poor sleeping habits, and poor academic performance
- Legal problems
- Low self-esteem
- Anxiety (including social anxiety)
- School phobia
- Peer relationship problems
- Depression, lack of motivation, and lack of interest in activities
If you are experiencing any of these issues, support and guidance is available through the STEP/TEEN Program.
STEP/TEEN is an engaging and enriching 7-week program designed to fit into busy family schedules
The STEP/TEEN Program offers individual and family sessions for parents and teens. The purpose is to explore and learn about effective parenting styles, the nature of the parent-child relationship (and other relationships), and the appropriate responses and communication needed in the evolving parent-teen relationship.
Keisha Henry has many years of experience working with parents and adolescents with specific training in the S.T.E.P. Curriculum (Systematic Training for Effective Parenting). STEP is an evidence-based program that is highly effective and recommended to address a wide range of parenting and teen issues such as:
- Understanding yourself and your teenager
- Changing your response to your teenager
- Communicating respect and encouragement
- Encouraging cooperation and solving problems
- Using responsibility to build character and independent functioning
