What is ADAPT?

ADAPT is an evidence-based parent coaching program for families with school-aged children. Key parenting skills taught include: encouragement, emotion coaching and emotion regulation, limit setting, monitoring, problem solving, and positive involvement.

Designed and developed by researchers and clinicians, the ADAPT program is an adaptation of the GenerationPMTO model to serve parents who have experienced stress and/or trauma in their lives and/or work.

Research results show that ADAPT significantly improves parenting, and parents’ confidence. Children show improved behavior and emotional adjustment. Parents also report reduced depression, PTSD, and suicidal tendencies, and show more effective responses to their children's big emotions.

What families are saying

Our family has really thrived because of ADAPT; it has increased our awareness of our parenting strengths and weaknesses. Our communication is better and we are more thoughtful of our actions and behaviors.

The ADAPT program helped me realize I didn’t have to be the perfect mother, and they gave me the tools to definitely be a more successful one.

I found that when my home life was good, that I could do anything, and that my anxieties went down. This program turned my life around 180 degrees.
