Strengething Families Programme 
(UK 10-14 Oxford Brooks)


The Strengthening Families Programme 10-14 (UK) is a seven-week, evidence-based programme to help families with young people aged between 10 and 14-years-old to prepare for teenage years.
The programme is aimed at reducing alcohol and substance misuse, behavioural problems in adolescence and strengthening the parent/carer-child relationship.
Targeted outcomes of the programme include: increased parenting skills; improved family competency; prevention of substance use/misuse; reduced youth aggressive and hostile behaviour; increased academic success. These can be achieved by building protective factors (eg supportive family) and reducing the risk factors (eg poor communication), which are strongly related to pathways to offending.
