MCHD participates in Parent Project event
MOBILE, Ala. — The Mobile County Health Department (MCHD) Community Prevention Program staff were recently invited to participate in the Gulf Coast Family Center’s Parent Project Facilitator Training event available to Mobile County providers. This training event took place at the Central Office of the Mobile County Public School System (MCPSS).
The Parent Project is a parent training program that teaches curriculum for parents raising difficult or obstinate children. This project has worked with more than half a million parents to provide education and techniques for raising strong willed children and adolescents.
Training took place over a four-day period where employees were educated on program facilitation developed by the Parent Project Founders. During the training, staff functioned as parents for the first three days before presenting the curriculum as a facilitator on the final day.
After the training course was completed, each staff member received certification qualifying them to facilitate the Parent Project Curriculum. With the information received from this training, Community Prevention Programs department staff will continue to better educate the community and strengthen families throughout Mobile County.
