Measuring Outcomes for Mutual Self-Help Support (Workshop 4)
Presenters report the results of an evaluation project designed to learn about and document the outcomes for parents who attend the National Circle of Parents, emphasizing particularly the Family Support Network's mutual self-help support groups in Minnesota. Additionally, the session describes the research model for the four-year Office of Child Abuse and Neglect (OCAN) project and discusses current implementation of the parent-led mutual self-help support groups from a national and parent perspective. Participants also gain an opportunity to learn to conduct successful focus groups for parents who attend mutual self-help support groups and an awareness of the methodological limitations when measuring outcomes of parent involvement in mutual self-help support groups.
