“Parenting Skills and Child Development: The Importance of Positive Parenting and the Future of Skill-Based Approaches to Parenting Intervention”
Many parenting interventions include a construct called "positive parenting." What is positive parenting and why is this construct central to family and parenting skill interventions? This will be a discussion-oriented presentation that will focus on the core components of positive parenting, interventions that have demonstrated effects on positive parenting, and implications for large-scale community dissemination across different cultures and contexts.
Co-sponsored with the Edna Bennett Pierce Prevention Research Center.
Dr. Stormshak is also presenting the Bennett Lecture on Thursday, October 20, 2022 from 4:00–5:30 p.m. in the Bennett Pierce Living Center (110 Henderson Building).
