Curriculum-Based Support Group (CBSG)

CBSG is a support group designed to increase resiliency and reduce factors among children and youth ages 4-17 who are at a higher risk of using substances, future delinquency, and violence (e.g. they are living in adverse family situations, displaying gaps in coping and social skills, or displaying early indicators of antisocial attitudes and behaviors). The CBSG program teaches kids essential life skills and offers emotional support to help children and youth cope with difficult family situations; resist peer pressure; set and achieve goals; refuse alcohol, tobacco, and other drugs; and reduce antisocial attitudes and rebellious behaviors. Delivered in 12 weekly, 1-hour support group sessions in the schools, the curriculum includes:

  • Self-concept
  • Anger and other feelings
  • Dreams and goal setting
  • Healthy choices
  • Friends
  • Peer pressure
  • Life challenges
  • Family chemical dependency
  • Making a public commitment to staying drug free and true to life goals
