Prevention and Early Intervention Services

Uplift Family Services collaborates with Campbell Union School District, San Jose Unified School District, Mountain View-Whisman School District and Mountain View-Los Altos Union High School District to provide parenting workshops, coaching, social skill building classes, behavioral intervention and support, linkage to resources as well as individual and family therapy.

Four evidence based practices are used in Prevention and Early Intervention:

  • Strengthening Families – internationally recognized program reducing problem behaviors such as delinquency, drug and alcohol abuse and improving social competencies and school performance.
  • Triple P Parenting Groups and Individual Service – focuses on parent-child interaction and application of parenting skills to address severe behavior challenges. Modules include home visits, mood management strategies, stress coping skills and partner support skills. Parental depression and conflict between parents is also effectively addressed.
  • Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy – addresses the bio psychosocial needs of children with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) or other problems related to a traumatic life experience.
  • Brief Strategic Family Therapy – offered to families struggling with high conflict, managing their child’s disruptive behaviors or engaging in maladaptive patterns of family interaction and/or communication patterns.

In addition to the above four evidence based practices, families will be linked to resources such as housing, food, clothing, recreational activities, social supports, churches, immigration support and services, legal support, etc. depending on the needs of the family.
