Systematic Training for Effective Parenting: STEP

Systematic Training for Effective Parenting (STEP) has reached more than three million parents/caregivers over the past two decades. This twelve weekly two- hour parent education study group helps parents/caregivers learn effective ways to relate to their children. By identifying the purposes of children’s behavior, STEP also helps parents/caregivers learn how not to reinforce their children’s unacceptable behaviors and how to encourage cooperative behavior. The program offers concrete alternatives to abusive, ineffective methods of discipline and control.
