ICDP in Chicago

The ICDP programme is being used in Kane and Cook Counties with partners such as Chicago Public Schools, Mental Health Services, Children's Home and Aid Societies, Community Organizations, and Faith Communities.

The ICDP programme is a tool for capacity development of community professionals and leaders who in turn, facilitate  ICDP sessions with parents and other caregivers over a period of 8 to 16 weeks, on weekly basis. The program was found to be valuable to all parents, but it has also been implemented successfully with targeted groups of parents; single, teen, of children with special needs, immigrants, incarcerated, military-connected, parents at-risk, etc.
