Parenting is considered to be a strong, potentially modifiable factor with respect to child behaviour. Positive and consistent parenting has been associated with successful child development and fewer behaviour problems. Parenting programs aim to enhance parental capacity and provide parents with strategies with the intention to improve parenting practice and child functioning. However, while it is generally accepted that parenting programs work, evaluation across parenting programs has been challenging for researchers. This presentation will highlight an analysis of parenting programs by educational intervention components (i.e., group discussion, coaching and feedback, role play classroom training, reflection and others). The findings provide insight into the extent and range of existing programs and the types of outcomes assessed.
