Roots and Wings, Volumes I and II. Parent-to-Parent Dissemination, Phases I and II.
Evans, Judith L.; And Others
This report analyzes the effectiveness of the High/Scope Parent-to-Parent (PTP) Model as a system for disseminating support to families and communities. Focusing on dissemination to a variety of program sites and efforts to help selected sites function as Regional Training and Dissemination Centers (RTDCs) for the model, the report is divided into two volumes. Volume I primarily deals with dissemination at the program level, while volume II examines the development of the centers and discusses the role of facilitators in this process. Volume I consists of two parts. The first part describes the PTP model, its implementation, and services delivered in current programs at seven case study sites. Additionally, the model evaluation is discussed, outcomes across programs are described, and cost analysis in relation to evaluation and program implementation and operation is reported. Discussion concludes with a summary of the PTP model. The second part provides a view of the model's effectiveness, describing 18 family case studies and offering a detailed analysis deriving general lessons about the model's effectiveness in working with families. Volume II reports an effort to maximize the number of communities reached by training successful first-generation sites to disseminate the model. Specifically, this volume describes the PTP model and the dissemination and evaluation program, details both the New England and the Miami Valley RTDCs, outlines the training and technical assistance process, and offers a final summary. Conclusions report success for the project: (1) in supporting the development of parenting skills; and (2) in developing criteria and processes for guiding agencies in the utilization of this model.
