Family Check-Up - Toddler

About This Resource

The Family Check-Up (Toddler version) is a strengths-based, family-centered intervention that motivates parents to use parenting practices in support of child competence, mental health, and reducing risks for substance use. The intervention has two phases: 1) initial interview, assessment, and feedback; and 2) Everyday Parenting as a follow-up service that builds parents' skills in positive behavior support, healthy limit-setting, and relationship-building. Phase 1 involves three 1-hour sessions (interview, assessment, and feedback). As a health promotion and prevention strategy, Phase 2 of the FCU can be limited to 1 to 3 Everyday Parenting sessions; as a treatment approach, Phase 2 can range from 3 to 15 Everyday Parenting sessions. The FCU is appropriate for families with toddlers 17 months through 2 years of age and has been evaluated with samples including people of African American, White, Latino or Hispanic, and other race/ethnicities. FCU providers should have a master's degree in education, social work, counseling, or related areas.
