This article presents a possible model of parents’ training in an area at risk by a socio-economic and cultural point of view. It clarifies the theoretical framework that, during four years, has been the basis for the design, the implementation and the evaluation of several actions in a primary school in the city of Palermo. From this theoretical framework, which concern primarily the eco-systemic and socioconstructivist perspectives, some basic points are enucleated, such as the concepts of "context" and of empowerment. Some methodological and operational choices are also explained, in line with this approach, such as: the dimension of the working group, the narrative and the life stories dimension, the analogical area and the dimension of the “play” as “transitional area”. The monitoring and the evaluation in the short and medium term have shown that training programs, according to these theoretical and methodological principles, operate in a system in which the increase in the power of individuals increases the power of the group. However, since the deep cultural changes are long and difficult, it is necessary don’t forget the socio-political dimension, otherwise there will be the possibility of the nullification of the interventions and the risk of causing new frustrations.
