How the Chicago Parent Program works

The Chicago Parent Program is a 12-session group-based parenting program designed to strengthen parenting skills and communication and improve young children’s behavior. The weekly 2-hour Chicago Parent Program sessions are delivered by trained group leaders guided by The Chicago Parent Program Group Leader Manual (2nd edition). Parents learn during highly interactive group sessions using video examples of parents managing common but often challenging parenting situations at home and in public, group discussion and problem-solving, role play, and practice activities.
