    Dear Colleague:

    The 36-year-old, nonprofit Center for the Improvement of Child Caring (CICC), is proud to announce that its three national model, parenting skill-building programs are now available to be taught as one-day seminars at any location in the nation.

    Below you will learn about each of the programs and seminars, as well as arrangements and costs for bringing them to your area.

    Program Overview
    and Need for One-Day Seminars

    CP Parent's Handbook

    Nelson

    These evidence-based programs - Confident Parenting: Survival Skill Training, Effective Black Parenting, and Los Ninos Bien Educados - are already in use in 44 states and the District of Columbia by over 2,500 organizations. They have won awards for their effectiveness and cultural relevance. They are being used for a variety of prevention and treatment purposes, depending on the missions of the organizations who bring the programs to their communities.

    The programs are customarily taught by professionally trained and certified instructors who meet with groups of 10 to 20 parents for one class session a week for ten to fifteen weeks. Many parents have difficulty arranging their lives to be able to participate in such classes. So without alternative teaching formats, many parents just cannot attend and benefit.

    The one-day seminar format, which is often used by businesses and professional groups, provides a more accessible option and one where large numbers of parents can participate. These educational events can be attended by as many as two hundred parents at a time.

    The one-day seminars that CICC is now making available are led by professional instructors from our staff, and each parent receives a program handbook to use while in the seminar and at home.

    Below you will find outlines and schedules of what is taught in each one-day seminar. You will also find links to detailed descriptions of the content, history and evaluation of each program.

    If you would like to explore bringing one or more of these seminars to your agency or community, write me at kalvy@ciccparenting.org.

    Be sure to include some information about yourself and your organization.

    Or you can call me at CICC's toll-free number, (800) 325-2422. We are located in North Hollywood, California.

    I am very much looking forward to hearing from you, and to working together to bring these excellent parenting programs and training events to your area.

    With warmest regards,

    Kerby T. Alvy, Ph.D.
    CICC Founder and Executive Director

    Costs and Arrangements

    The way the seminars are brought to you is by having one of our top professional seminar instructors travel to your area to lead the seminar for you. Before that date, we work with you to help you recruit and involve parents and others in your community who you may want to attend, like community leaders and potential funding sources for your parent education and parent involvement services.

    This assistance is accomplished via telephone consultation and by making available Recruitment Flyers (click here for an example of a recruitment flyer) and Certificates of Attendance for those who will complete your seminar (click here for example of a certificate). We also send you a shipment of Seminar Guides to be used and given to everyone in your seminar (click here for a description of a guide).

    The costs for the seminars are based on having 100 participants per seminar at $40 a participant ($4000), which covers the consultation, the Seminar Guides and the instructor. The travel costs of the instructor (transportation, lodging and per diem) also need to be paid by your organization.

    You may want to support your seminar by having the participants pay all or a portion of an enrollment fee or by charging them for the Guides. You may also want to seek grant funding from corporations or foundations rather than use your organization's funds. All options are available for underwriting these fine educational events.

    If you would like to bring one or more seminars to your district or school, write us about your desire at kalvy@ciccparenting.org. Be sure to include identifying information (name, title, location, etc.) and your purposes in wanting to bring parenting seminars to your parents and communities.

    Or you can call us toll free at 1 (800) 325-2422. We are located in North Hollywood, California.

    We look forward to hearing from you and working together to help your parents and communities to be more effective in raising achieving and fine young people.
