SA#2: Strengthening Families Program (SFP)

sa-sfpThe Strengthening Families Program (SFP) is a parenting and family strengthening program for high risk families. It combines science-based (1) parenting-skill training, (2) child life-skill building, and  (3) family lifeskill education into a program that improves the child’s social/life skills and family functioning and protects the children from the long-term risks of drug abuse.

A nationally recognized program, SFP has been shown effective by numerous independent research studies and has been implemented worldwide. It was developed in the late 1980s by Karol Kumpfer, Ph.D. through a research grant funded by the National Institute on Drug Abuse. There are now several versions of the original program that accommodate the needs of different age groups and at risk populations.
