Strong African American Families Teen (SAAF-Teen)

About This Resource

Strong African American Families - Teen is a five-week community-based program developed for 16 year-old African American youth and their caregivers. Families meet in interactive small groups with trained facilitators once a week for 2 hours. Lessons are intended to promote protective caregiving (setting limits, monitoring, racial pride and strategies for dealing with discrimination, monitoring and supporting academic achievement, and cooperative problem solving), as well as youth self-regulation. The aim of this program is to deter youth substance use, conduct problems, and depressive symptoms. (Source)
