What's New with SCAN's Family Support Program
Currently SCAN's Family Support Program (FSP) is running nine, 20-week, intensive treatment groups for parents who have experienced, or are at high risk of experiencing child abuse or neglect.
The Family Support Program holds a number of groups with different focuses and components. One FSP group has a "family interaction component" that provides parents with an opportunity to put into practice the skills they are learning in their group, promoting positive behaviors in their children and improving the quality of the parent-child relationship.
FSP will now be offering a day group at The Partnership for Families Northside (PFN). PFN provides a range of services, including childcare, literacy programs, and employment services. This is a location that is familiar and easily accessible, as a large majority of FSP clients commute from the Northside Neighborhoods.
Currently, FSP has 3 specialty groups which include: a group for mothers in Recovery at Mercy House, a group for Spanish-speaking parents, and a modified 20-week group for parents with intellectual disabilities or severe mental health diagnoses. The clients in this modified group have been attending group regularly and making steady and consistent progress; learning new skills around setting limits, the importance of empathy, and understanding their parental role specifically during visitation, as most of them do not have custody of their children.
