Subject:RE: strengths/competency based measures

Regarding the canMI database, you might wish to include the Keys to Interactive Parenting Scale (KIPS), which we have developed specifically for family service providers as a strengths-based observational assessment of parenting for parents/caregivers of children 2 months through 5 years of age. It assesses 12 key parenting behaviors gleaned from the research literature that provide a nurturing environment to promote child development and serve as protective factors to prevent maltreatment. With support form NICHD, we have recently conducted reliability and validity studies within community-based family service programs. Please feel free to contact me directly at my email below for further information. Thanks, Marilee Marilee Comfort, PhD, MPH Comfort Consults, LLC KIPS maps the path to nurturing parenting! P.O.
