Book Title: Everyday Parenting: A Professional's Guide to Building Family Management Skills
Publisher: Research Press
Author: Dr. Thomas J. Dishion
Continuing the tradition of Gerald Patterson s classic best-seller Living with Children from Research Press, the Everyday Parenting program can be used for guiding individual family therapy, leading parent groups, and training counselors to work collaboratively with parents. This session-based approach is divided into three areas of skills based on the concept of mindful parenting: supporting positive behavior, setting healthy limits, and building family relationships by helping parents change interaction patterns that occur daily in families and relationships. The Everyday Parenting curriculum is an adaption of the social learning approach to parent training and family therapy and is based on an intervention model developed at the Oregon Social Learning Center. The curriculum emphasizes ways to support changes in families social interaction patterns to help reduce problem behavior in children and adolescents. An accompanying CD contains printable forms and handouts in PDF format (Adobe Acrobat Reader required to view and print).
