Class Description:

Family Matters is a community class primarily based on the Love and Logic® model of parent education and rooted in the Parenting the Love and Logic Way™ curriculum. Though this is the core model used, a variety of other evidence-based and parent-tested approaches to parenting education are also discussed, all of which are deeply rooted in a solid understanding of child and adolescent development.

Family Matters and the integrated Love and Logic® model offer an effective parenting program that reduces behavior problems and increases motivation, responsibility, and resilience in children and adolescents. It is for parents, caregivers, and educators of all kinds who are committed to learning and practicing skills that support the development of responsible, resilient, and emotionally well-regulated children.

Family Matters
teaches simple and practical techniques to help parents, caregivers, and educators with kids of all ages. Some of the skill-based outcomes of this community class include:

  • Gaining a variety of tools for raising responsible kids
  • Learning creative ways to build a healthy relationship with your child or children
  • Discovering and practicing techniques for minimizing whining and power struggles
  • Establishing easy and immediately effective ways of changing destructive or disrespectful behavior
  • Finding support in setting and keeping limits
  • Creating long-term positive changes in the parent and/or caregiver relationship

The Family Matters class is taught in an engaging and interactive style combining lecture, video, group discussion, role-play, art, non-verbal communication, and fun. Parents can work privately as well as have opportunities to share with and learn from one another. All of our classes are taught by members of our Center for Relational and Family Wellness (CRFW), which include graduate level counselors or interns with specific training in child development and family systems. In addition, our class instructors are all independent facilitators of Parenting the Love and Logic Way® and/or Becoming a Love and Logic Parent™, developed by the Love and Logic Institute®, Inc. based in Golden, Colorado.

Class Objectives:

This quarterly, repeating community class presents the full six modules of the Parenting the Love and Logic Way™ curriculum and also integrates key concepts from other approaches. It can be taken just once or multiple times and was designed to help parents and educators find specific answers and actions for some of the most difficult moments in raising children and supporting their integrated development. Participants in each of these community classes receive a packet of helpful materials and resources as well as learn more about how to:

  1. Avoid un-winnable power-struggles and arguments
  2. Stay calm when your kids do incredibly upsetting things
  3. Set enforceable limits
  4. Avoid enabling and begin empowering
  5. Help your kids learn from mistakes rather than repeating them
  6. Raise kids who are family members rather than dictators

Each 7.5-hour community class begins with introductions of participants and an overview of the materials followed by lively discussion of the content areas. Class participants are encouraged to ask questions and bring relevant information from their own families or work contexts to the day. This community class is for clients, partners, friends, educators, and mental health professionals who want to learn more about how to raise responsible, resilient, and emotionally well-regulated children.

Class Instructors:

This community class is facilitated by Ryan Kennedy, PsyD, LMFT, along with other members of the Center for Relational and Family Wellness (CRFW) counseling team. Ryan is a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, a Clinical Member of the American Association for Marriage and Family Therapy, an authorized Prepare/Enrich® Facilitator and Trainer, and an Independent Facilitator of Love and Logic® Curricula. He has trained in multiple approaches to working with couples including Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT), the Pragmatic/Experiential Method of Improving Relationships (PEX), Satir Transformational Systemic Therapy (STST), Dialectical Behavior Therapy for Distressed Couples, and the Gottman Method of Relationship Therapy. He also has extensive experience in working with couples and families of all types and brings with him a wealth of knowledge in attachment theory, recovery from addiction and trauma, as well as understanding and supporting healthy child and adult development.

Class Text:

The Family Matters Community Class draws from the book, Parenting with Love and Logic®, by Foster Cline and Jim Fay. Class participants are encouraged to purchase and become familiar with the book ahead of time and to bring it with them to the class as a resource. The book is available HERE as well as many other booksellers.
