Parenting Inside Out

Building Stronger Families Together

About PIO

Parenting Inside Out (PIO) is a research-based parent management skills training program designed specifically for criminal justice and systems-involved parents. The program was developed through a six-year collaboration of experts in science, policy, practice, and instructional design. The curriculum is presented in an interactive and step-by-step format over 12 weeks and 24 sessions, satisfying mandated parenting class requirements.

PIO offers valuable information for parents of all age groups, providing guidance on how to interact positively with different personalities and needs. The program creates opportunities for families to connect with resources, experience coached family time, enhance life skills, and build positive social networks for family success.
Classes are free and held at various locations throughout Clackamas County. Depending on the location, free childcare and a light meal may be provided. Join us and learn how to be an effective parent while building a strong family foundation.

"I have really benefitted from Parenting Inside Out. My eyes have really been opened to what I thought I knew. I am grateful for the opportunity to be with other parents, share our experiences, as well as our similar and different hardships, joys, and sorrows because these experiences have made me feel that I am not alone. This class is a great example that it is never too late to become the best parent you can be.”
