hOW IS lET’S CONNECT DELIVERED?
How is Let’s Connect Delivered?
Let’s Connect involves individualized training, skills modeling and live support for skills practice for caregivers of children and youth. Let’s Connect takes approximately 8-12 weekly sessions. Caregivers and youth both participate in Let’s Connect sessions.
Let’s Connect can be delivered alone as a preventive intervention (individual or group formats) for all families, including families experiencing significant parenting challenges. Let’s Connect can also be used as a strategic enhancement to existing evidence-based child and family mental health interventions to enhance the supportive quality of the caregiver-child relationship, build caregiver’s communication skills, and increase treatment engagement.
Let’s Connect skills are taught to parents/caregivers using several methods:
Direct instruction and discussion
Live, guided skills practice including coaching of parent-child interaction
Guided mindfulness & wellness practices
