- About Us
KVC Health Systems is committed to enriching and enhancing the lives of children and families by providing medical and behavioral healthcare, social services, and education.
If you’re a parent, you know that children don’t come with a handbook. There are many challenges that come with helping a person along the road from childhood to adulthood. But while there’s no simple guide, there are many time-tested skills that every parent can benefit from learning.
The KVC Institute for Health Systems Innovation has put together a series of articles, each one focused on the 12 parenting skills taught in the Parent Management Training – Oregon Model (PMTO). This is a model that KVC uses with its public and private agency partners in Kansas and elsewhere. Join us to learn some very helpful parenting skills!
