EPIC Parenting Classes

Children’s Aid Society’s Effective Parenting Instruction Course (EPIC) provides FREE parenting classes utilizing the Systematic Training for Effective Parenting (STEP) curriculum to Jefferson and Shelby County parents with children between the ages of 0-18 years.

Class sessions are 6 weeks and meet weekly with an option for morning, afternoon, or evening classes. Classes are held at the Jefferson County Family Resource Center and the CAS Center for Youth and Families in Birmingham, or as requested at other locations. 

The classes are available in English and Spanish. Certificate awarded upon completion of all classes.

Sessions address a range of important topics including:

  • Understanding children and their behavior
  • Encouragement and self-esteem
  • Improving communication skills
  • Building strong family relationships
  • Effective discipline

Classes are designed to help strengthen each participant’s parenting by providing skills training to parents. The program encourages a more democratic parenting style of providing children choices and fostering responsibility, improving communication between parent and child, and helping children learn through natural and logical consequences.
