Parent Education Programs
We teach valuable life skills and strategies with individuals enjoying a more peaceful environment as the end goal.
The SafeCare® Model, in partnership with Hibiscus Children’s Center
SafeCare is an evidence-based, parent-training curriculum for parents of children ages 0-5 who are at-risk for or have been reported for child neglect or physical abuse. SafeCare providers work with families in their homes to improve parents’ skills in three areas:
- parent-infant/child interaction skills.
- health care skills.
- home safety.
SafeCare is typically conducted in weekly home visits lasting from 60-90 minutes each. The program typically lasts 18-20 weeks for each family. SafeCare can be conducted by itself, or with other services.
Evidence-Base of SafeCare
Numerous publications document the development and validation of SafeCare. Several randomized studies have shown positive outcomes compared to services as usual or no services on the following outcomes: increased parenting skill, reduced likelihood of child maltreatment reports, reduced parental depression, improved program engagement and completion, and increased program satisfaction.
SafeCare is listed by several evidence-based practice lists, including California Evidence-Based Clearinghouse for Child Welfare (CEBC); Maternal, Infant, and Early Childhood Home Visiting (MIECHV); National Resource Center for Permanency and Family Connections; and Promising Practices Network
Our clinically intensive therapeutic parent education programs are designed to assess areas of strength and deficit in each patient. BBI also designs an individualized training plan to educate and teach safe, proactive discipline, enabling parents to raise their children independently and provide a safe environment at home.
