The main components of the intervention are parent discussions with an interventionist and a family workbook designed to teach parents effective communication skills, build parent-adolescent relationships, help parents develop successful monitoring strategies, and teach adolescents assertiveness and refusal skills. The program can be delivered to parents either individually or in small group sessions, in a range of settings.

American Lung Association-Freedom From Smoking Clinic Training: (6-8 hour training for staff, leads of organizations, interns, etc.)

 

(8 week/1x per week class).

A Freedom From Smoking® Group Clinic will give your clients the knowledge and tools they need to overcome their tobacco addiction and quit smoking for good, so they can enjoy better health, extra money in their pocket and many other rewards. 

 

Over the course of eight sessions led by an expert facilitator, clinic participants work through the quitting process together. Eight weeks may sound like a lot of time but research has proven that the more time a tobacco user spends in a supportive situation while trying to quit, the more likely they are to succeed. People who use the Freedom From Smoking Group Clinic are six times more likely to be smoke free one year later than those who try to quit on their own.

 

**Organization may receive stipend depending on grant for hosting a clinic-Minimum of 4- maximum of 16 participants for each clinic.
