ACS shares news about available resources, upcoming events

Scream Free Parenting offered
Army Community Service’s Family Advocacy Program is hosting two courses that can improve relationships between spouses as well as relationships parents have with their children. Fort Huachuca chaplains and the Family Advocacy Program are hosting a six-week Scream Free Parenting Course that started Thursday. Each Thursday from 11 a.m. to noon at Kino Chapel, parents will learn the vital skills that focus on calm, yet stern parenting rather than resorting to screaming. There is still time to participate in the remaining sessions of the course.

“This course will teach you to correct that behavior if it has already started as well as prevent it from happening in the future,” said Family Advocacy Program Manager Elaine Maher. “You don’t already have to have a ‘screaming’ parenting style in order to attend. This course will teach you other methods of parenting in order to prevent that from happening.” For more information or to register for the Scream Free Parenting Course, call ACS at 520-533-2330 or call Maher at 520-533-6873.

Domestic Violence & Awareness training
On Oct. 21, the Family Advocacy Program will host Domestic Violence: Safety and Awareness: Networking for Success at 8 a.m. at Murr Community Center. Maher said this program is just as important for those who are in healthy relationships as well as those that are showing signs of abuse.

“Abusive relationships don’t always start that way — they’re built,” Maher said. “This program focuses on prevention. It is an opportunity to learn more about communication and learning to avoid potential issues within a relationship.”

Maher also said sometimes a person in a relationship does not realize their partner can be abusive without being physical. “When the partner won’t let you see your friends or won’t let you call your mother, that may be abuse,” Maher said. “This program will teach you to recognize those habits and provide you with the knowledge that allows you to communicate better and prevent the situation from getting worse.”

The seminar’s key note speaker is Stephanie Orr, M.C., executive director of the Case Center for Positive Social Change. She will present “Power: Positive Outcomes Within Every Relationship.” The conference will last approximately four hours. This training complies with the annual Domestic Violence and Awareness Training for FY14. Signing in at the beginning of training is required in order to receive the Certificate of Attendance at the end of the conference. Registration is now open and closes Oct. 17. For more information, contact Maher at 520-533-6873 or Allitra Williams at 520-533-2993.
