Subject:RE: In-home service outcome measures

Hi Jim: If you are working on parenting and parent-child relationships to re-build this protective factor for families with children under 6 years old, you might consider the Keys to Interactive Parenting Scale (KIPS). KIPS is a brief parenting assessment designed to observe 12 key areas during parent-child play. It can be used to guide clinical services and document outcomes. Recent studies supported by grants from NICHD have demonstrated its reliability, validity and clinical relevance for targeting services to individual family strengths and needs and detecting changes in parenting during intervention. You can find more information on the tool and the online training and library support system at our website, www.ComfortConsults.com/kips , or feel free to contact me off-list.

We basically send 2 therapists into the home to work with the family with the focus on keeping the child in the home, school and community. Most of the referrals are the last chance to keep the kid out of foster care, residential care or other alternative placements. Appreciate your thoughts on this.
