Parent Project.

The Parent Project is a parenting class that is being brought to the 20th Judicial District. Classes will not begin until Fall 2019. 

Parent’s Guide to Changing Destructive Adolescent Behavior (CDAB) is the only parent training program that addresses the MOST destructive of adolescent behaviors. Now in its 12th edition, CDAB has become the program of choice for parents raising difficult or out-of-control teens. The American Bar Association’s Center on Children and the Law, named the Parent Project the largest court mandated juvenile diversion program in the country. With a focus on improving both school attendance and performance, CDAB has become a favorite of middle and high school educators as well.

Effective: Using a behavioral model, CDAB addresses the critical issues parents face today and offers concrete, step-by-step, solutions, not theory.

Need-based: CDAB is the only curriculum actually created by parent questions. Over 500,000 parents of high-risk youth helped to develop this unique program.

The Best Teaching Strategies: CDAB is an activity-based curriculum built on cooperative learning norms. Parents work in groups to brainstorm, practice applying new ideas, and build support. The “magic” happens at the tables.

Parent Support: CDAB uses the UCLA self-help support group model to create on-going, parent-led community support groups.
