Assuring Successful Extension Workshops.
Goddard, H. Wallace
This paper lists and briefly describes principles that were used to conduct a successful parenting workshop on building strong families. Principles described are those that lay the groundwork for the workshop, pertain to the operation of an effective workshop, and relate to follow-up and evaluation. The principles were used to conduct a five-session parenting workshop attended by 90 percent of the 53 participants. Adolescent children of participating parents consistently rated their parents higher on items related to change than did adolescent children of control parents. Scores of children of participating mothers were significantly higher than those of controls on 11 of 16 variables. For children of participating fathers, 12 of 16 scores were higher. (RH)
