Fostering healthy parent-child relationships and supporting child development and well-being

The Stanford Parenting Center (SPC) ensures that parents are powerful partners in supporting their child’s mental health and well-being by providing them the right resources and tools. Parents are empowered to tap into their existing parenting abilities and learn evidence-based strategies to help them recognize, defuse, and even treat their child’s mental health difficulties.

Our team of experts believes that all parents can expand their skills and develop new behaviors to foster healthy parent-child relationships and support their child’s development and well-being. By accessing our wide range of programs and complementary resources, parents gain confidence in their parenting skills, find greater enjoyment in their parenting roles, and decrease the risk for pediatric psychiatric disorders. The SPC works with the Division of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry and Child Development at the Stanford University School of Medicine, giving you access to a team of world-class experts.

For each topic on the right, we offer webinars, consultation/educational groups, and individual treatment options. Please click each topic to learn more about our offerings.
