Subject:RE: Bringing EB child maltx prevention to the public

If you are looking for preventive public education programs, our organization (Education for Successful Parenting) has a program "Healthy Foundations for Future Parenting." It is provided to teens - usually in public high school health education classes, which is often a required HS course. Using motivational interviewing techniques, our goal is to empower teens to make more informed and healthier choices prior to forming a family, and better prepare them for their parenting responsibilities. More specifically, we focus on factors that have been identified as precursors to child maltreatment. We've been conducting our program for 9 years, and have instructed over 4,800 teens. Our program could probably be categorized as a promising practice; and we hope our program will be more rigorously evaluated so we can ultimately become evidence-based. (Please consider this an open invitation to researchers.) Website: www.eduparents.org I will be happy to provide more information if desired. Randi Randi S. Rubenstein, M.S.

Sent: Friday, October 31, 2014 10:19 PM To: Child Researchers Subject: Bringing EB child maltx prevention to the public Greetings! I'm searching for evidence-based child maltreatment prevention programs that bring information on risk factors to the public/parents at the primary, secondary, or tertiary levels. I am wondering if there are programs that are similar to shaken baby prevention programs in that they provide information to parents (and others) about risk factors for abuse and neglect. Or, that are similar to general health promotion programs that educate the public about healthy eating, need for exercise, prevention of smoking, etc. If anyone knows of any, pls. let me know, regardless of evalution. Thanks much in advance for your help. Emily Douglas Emily M. Douglas, Ph.D. Associate Professor | School of Social Work Director, Grad.
