Eligibility Requirements/Insurance: Clients must be committed to the Department of Youth Services (Southeast Region). There are no insurance requirements. Mission and/or Goals of Program: Parenting with Love and Limits (PLL) is an evidence-based family education, skill-building and therapeutic intervention model which has demonstrated effectiveness in significantly reducing aggressive behaviors, depression, attention deficit disorder problems, externalizing problems and substance use while also reducing recidivism and improving family communication. The program targets specific risk and protective factors related to delinquency and other emotional and behavioral problems. PLL is currently recognized as a Model Program through OJJDP and SAMSHA s National Registry of Evidence-Based Programs and Practices ( PLL utilizes assessment, group sessions and individual coaching sessions throughout the program. Typically, parenting groups are based on one treatment approach, but then during aftercare, individual family therapy is based on something completely different. This creates confusion in the family and inhibits positive change. PLL consistently employs one highly effective, research-based treatment model throughout both parent group and family therapy, with each session building on prior sessions. Parents/caregivers and adolescents attend group together to receive a new skill once each week, and that same week they receive individual family therapy "coaching" to practice this new skill. Types of Services and Supports Offered: Families receive three to six months of services in this program. They experience various pre & post assessments, six weeks of family groups and twelve (minimum) family coaching sessions. Service Area: Southeast Region Quincy, Brockton, Taunton, Fall River, New Bedford, & Bourne Referral Process: Families must be referred by their DYS Caseworker.
