The Family Check-Up, a highly successful family-counseling program, is currently being offered at a reduced cost to families with children between the ages 2 and 18 at the Arizona State University Clinical Psychology Center.
The Family Check-Up is a strengths-based family intervention that empowers parents to make positive changes in order to promote the well-being of their children and family.
Children of parents who participate in the program experience reduced problem behaviors, improved emotion regulation, reductions in substance use, and decreased risk for obesity. Positive outcomes of the program for children also include heightened self-esteem and positive coping, as well as improved academic performance.
Several studies and more than 30 years of evidence show that the Family Check-Up is effective in as few as three to six sessions. The data-driven, evidence-based program is proven to reduce children’s problem behaviors by improving parenting practices and strengthening family relationships.
Scheduled sessions will take place at the Arizona State University Clinical Psychology Center, located just east of Rural Road at 1100 E. University Drive, in Tempe, at days and times that are convenient for interested families.
