Family Talk is a proven effective four part parent workshop series that helps parents improve their communication with their children about sexuality and substance abuse. Parents who participate report that they gained knowledge and confidence in starting conversations with their children, and they also report increased communication with their children about sexuality topics. The workshop series can be delivered at no charge to parent groups in the City of Rochester. Hillside Children’s Center is the lead agency.
