Strengthening Families Program

Trainings that prepare facilitators to implement SFP cultural adaptation in their communities.


Since 2003, Ceceilia Tso has served as the official Native American and First Nations trainer, facilitator, and evaluator. She has collaborated with tribes in both Canada and the US to put this nationally recognized, evidence-based program model into action.


The Strengthening Families Program (SFP) was developed in 1982 by Dr. Karol Kumpfer, Ph.D., and is associated with funding from the National Institute of Drug Abuse. 


It is an evidence-based parenting program designed to train parents and kids to develop happier family relationships, improve mental health outcomes, and decrease youth alcohol and drug use, violence, and delinquent behavior.



  • 10 to 14 week 

  • Two-hour skills course conducted once a week

  • Separate parent, teen and child lessons held during the first hour

  • Followed by a family practice session during the second hour


SFP skills are for all families!

In SFP, a “family” is defined as one or more adults responsible for one or more children; a “parent” is an adult with that responsibility.
