Days 2 & 3:

A hands-on approach to conducting home and group-based NP including: facilitating weekly sessions; how to use program materials, videos and assessment tools; children’s and parents’ program activities; family home practice assignments; icebreakers; personal growth lessons; activities for personal power; alternatives to corporal punishment; and building self-esteem, self-concept and empathy in parents and children.

 

Learn how to use the online Adult-Adolescent Parenting Inventory (AAPI-2) to gather pre and post program outcome data. The AAPI-2 assesses parenting attitudes and child

-rearing beliefs of parents and adolescents. Founded on 5 parenting constructs known to lead to abusive parenting, the AAPI provides scores that profile parents at risk for abusing and neglecting children. More info at www.assessingparenting.com.
