Essentials to Help Families Thrive:

Supporting the Systems That Surround them

For Professionals

Do you work with families who find it difficult to access mental health services?

 Research shows that early intervention can drastically improve well-being for families of children with emotional and behavioral challenges. We simply need to do a better job of getting these resources out to the everyday parent in a modern and accessible modality. Families should not have to wait for a breaking point to obtain evidence-based care. It is a disservice for families to pushed to wait for a diagnosis, a crisis point, or adequate financial resources to access emotional and behavioral supports. 

As a provider, you can be part of the solution by committing to providing evidence-based care and investing in prevention programs that target barriers to this care. 

We are proud to partner with programs such as Seattle Head Start, the Bush School, Everett School District and mental health practitioners across the country in increasing access to early, evidence based family supports.

Why Us, Why Now?

We created our Essentials Parenting eCourse to bridge the gap between rigorously studied parenting interventions and the generalized parenting tools parents and clinicians can access.  We have extensive experience leading  evidence-based parenting interventions. While these programs are robust and valuable, many parents face barriers completing intensive, in-person sessions, particularly during these challenging times. Additionally, not all children and families require high level 1:1 intervention. Finally, if a parent is able to access services, the information they receive may be inconsistent depending on the philosophy and training of that particular provider. 

Our Essentials course was created to meet the needs of providers and families by providing a strong understanding of the core evidence-based concepts and skills in a mobile, modern, and perpetually accessible format
