Worried About Teenage Alcohol and Substance Abuse? Attend YCJUSD’s Upcoming Training Session
The Yucaipa-Calimesa Joint Unified School District (YCJUSD,) in partnership with the California Schools JPA Risk Management and Employee Benefits sections, will host the Thursday, April 25 HOPE event focused on Alcohol & Substance Abuse – Prevention & Intervention Training for Parents.
With nationally escalating rates of teenage alcohol and substance abuse most every parent worries about the possibility that their child may end up smoking, drinking, acting out or even becoming violent. The YCJUSD is hosting the upcoming, free and collaborative training session for parents to learn how they can best help their child.
McCall Stephens, Marriage and Family Therapist will use materials primarily from the Parent Project to provide parents and guardians with concrete, straightforward and step-by-step solutions when children exhibit challenging behaviors such as drug and alcohol use, failing grades, oppositional behaviors and school suspensions. The nationally recognized Parent Project is focused on parents and families who are dealing with difficult children and who are seeking support and information in navigating through this difficult time.
This Alcohol & Substance Abuse – Prevention & Intervention Training for Parents session will be held at the Family Learning Center at 12797 Third St. in Yucaipa from 6:30 to 9:00 p.m. Light refreshments will be provided for parents and community members in attendance. Free childcare for (potty-trained) three to seven-year-olds will be available.
Additionally, Spanish and deaf interrupters are available upon request. To request these services and/or to register for this special event contact: www.csjpa.org/hope.
