Sample Video from Families in Action

Your program kit contains 155 minutes of video for parents and 124 minutes of video for teens to demonstrate key concepts. (All videos are closed-captioned.) Here are some samples.


In this scene from Session 4 of the parent video, watch how Dad's perfectionism discourages his daughter. Before playing the video, the class leader will encourage parents to try putting themselves in Jada's shoes, and imagining what they would think, feel, and do if it were them.


The leader will then start a discussion with the class using questions from the Leader's Guide. The next video supports the group leader by having a narrator reinforce key points before showing a more encouraging way to handle the situation. (The narrator is also helpful to parents who may borrow the video from your resource library.) Again, put yourself in Jada's shoes and see what you would think, feel, and do this time.




In this clip from the teen video, high-spirited narrators Alicia and Connor present a summary of all six sessions:

Best practices make better classes
According to "Parent Education to Strengthen Families and Reduce the Risk of Maltreatment," a 2013 publication of the US Department of Health and Human Services,

"Interactive methods, as opposed to didactic lecturing, are a key aspect of successful parent education programs and include activities such as group discussion, role playing, active modeling, homework exercises, and reviewing videos of effective parenting approaches (Brown, 2005)."

With video, activities, "show and tell," group discussion, and weekly Family Enrichment Activities (homework), Families in Action meets all those requirements and more!
