Services for Families

Workshops for Parents, Families and the Community

The Community Services Board (CSB) offers workshops for parents, families, and the community that focus on developing the strengths and life skills of parents and their children.  Some of the workshops we offer include:

  • Family Matters 
    A four-hour seminar for parents who have petitioned the courts because of custody, visitation or child support.  The class helps teach parents about how conflict affects children.  Parents are also given information about community resources
  • Guiding Good Choices: Families that Care
    A five week workshop series that provides parents and others caring for 9-11 year olds the opportunity to learn and talk with others about ways to help kids make healthy decisions and avoid risky behaviors
  • Strengthening Families
    This program is for families with children 10-14 years old.  Parents meet to learn about adolescent development and share ideas that work while the pre-teens and teens learn their own set of skills.  Later the groups join together to practice what they have learned and have some fun.
  • Staying Connected with Your Teen
    Parents of teens aged 12-17 years old have the opportunity to learn and practice skills for improving communication and building stronger family bonds.

We also offer consultations for parents to talk about their concerns and help them gather ideas, resources and skills they can use at home.
