Parenting Coaching is a strengths-based intervention for foster, adoptive, and kinship families that teaches parenting skills that promote attachment and strengthen family bonds. Coaches deliver services only to the parents, not directly to the youth or in presence of the youth. Parent Coaches meet with clients weekly or bi-monthly. Duration of service can vary depending on the parent’s capacity of learning. Some client’s needs are met within 4 – 6 sessions, and others may need 12+ months.
