CPI Class Overview

CPI offers classes to parents of children ages 0-18. Each class is led by a trained parent educator who provides tools that parents can adapt to their own family's needs. All CPI classes have a strong child development foundation, supporting the belief that each child and parent brings unique needs and temperament to family life. Although many classes are held at the Parent Education Center in southwest Santa Rosa, others are conveniently located throughout Sonoma County.

Classes include Guiding your Toddler and Preschooler, Positive Parenting.

Cost is per person unless otherwise indicated. Unless noted parents DO NOT attend with child. Childcare is not provided and children may not be left unattended. Classes are held at our Parent Education Center, 3642 Standish Ave, Santa Rosa, CA.

If you prefer to register over the phone, please call (707) 585-6108 x1240 and have your credit card information ready. Payment in full is required for registration.

3650 Standish Ave, Santa Rosa

Many people in our community continue to experience

the far-reaching impacts of the wildfires.

For example, are you:

• Feeling on edge or anxious, easily triggered by

sounds, sights smells or other reminders of fire?

• Not quite yourself since the fires?

• Isolated from friends?

• Having a hard time defining and addressing

problems effectively?

• Experiencing an ongoing sense of sadness and

loss, whether you’ve lost your own home and/or

are impacted by the losses suffered by people

around you, and/or the loss of a local park,

business, or portion of your community?

This six week facilitated self-help group for adults will

use “Skills for Psychological Recovery” (SPR) to teach

skills that have helped people worldwide who’ve been

impacted by natural disasters to actively cope with

the aftermath and tackle problems effectively.

The focus will be on:

• Identifying and solving problems

• Improving quality of life and increasing positive


• Managing reactions/triggers

• Identifying ways that our own thoughts can bolster

our resiliency and effectiveness; improving/

reestablishing our social connections
