Best Practices for Parent Education Programs Seeking to Prevent Child Abuse (Workshop 49)
In an effort to help participants gain a better understanding of the risk factors for child abuse, this session uses the ecological model to outline and explore how individual, family, community, and cultural levels, or systems, interact to contribute to child abuse. Additionally, the workshop educates participants about the different steps involved in changing parents' behaviors, including targeting their knowledge, attitudes, skills, and aspirations about parenting. The session explores practical techniques that can be utilized in the real world to realize a child abuse prevention program's goals.
