Sinovuyo Caring Families Programme for Parents and Teens - Family Guidebook

The Sinovuyo Teen Parenting programme is part of the ‘Parenting for Lifelong Health’ initiative, a collaboration among UNICEF, WHO, non-governmental organizations (NGOs) and academics to develop and test evidence-based parenting programmes that are non-commercial and relevant to LMICs. Sinovuyo Teen is an evidence-informed modularized programme for at-risk families with adolescents aged 10–18 years Under the programme, adolescents and their primary caregivers participated in 14 workshop sessions, over 14 weeks. Ten of the sessions were for both adolescents and their caregivers, and four were separate; that is, the adolescents were in one workshop and the caregivers in the other. The programme used a non-didactic, collaborative, active, group learning approach with role-play, illustrations and home practice This included Sinovuyo participants being ‘buddied up’ in pairs for mutual support during, between and after workshops.
