Program Overview

Family Check-Up is a parent-centered, preventative program model to help parents address problem behaviors in young children before these behaviors become more serious or problematic. The Family Check-Up model uses motivational enhancement strategies to support four stages of intervention: the initial interview, the family assessment, feedback to parents, and follow-up.
