Hot Docs Program
HOT DOCS is a 7-week course designed for parents, caregivers, and child service providers of children up to approximately 7 years old. Participants in the parenting groups gain an understanding of what may be triggering behavior problems, how to help children learn pro-social skills, and what solutions will work best with their child. Participants learn both specific strategies to implement and a problem-solving method that can be applied as new challenges arise.
HOT DOCS/DOCS for Success has been recognized as an outstanding community resource and has received awards from Early Steps, Early Childhood Council, and the Hispanic Heritage Committee. HOT DOCS is recognized as an emerging best practice, with several studies published in peer reviewed journals.
Key findings included decreases in disruptive behavior, increases in parent competency, decrease in parenting stress, improvement in developmental milestones, and high satisfaction among caregivers.
This training will be taught in Albany on Thursday and Friday, October 13-14, 2016, from 9:00-3:00pm at the LBL-ESD Offices. Registration is required by September 20. To register, go to: https://www.lblesd.k12.or.us/training-calendar/
