Southwest Educational Development Lab., Austin, TX.
This final report describes activities of a Parent Education Center (PEC) at the Southwest Educational Development Laboratory (SEDL). The PEC was designed to serve the needs of practitioners, professionals and researchers in the field of parent education and to provide them with up-to-date information on parent education materials, programs and resources. PEC objectives focused on (1) providing training and technical assistance; (2) materials revision, placement, monitoring and evaluation of use; (3) identification and cataloging of new materials, disseminating parenting materials information and selling parent education products; (5) conducting workshops, planning for increasing networking among parent education providers, and writing conference reports; (6) conducting a follow-up impact study of training materials on parents' child rearing beliefs and behaviors, formulating policy recommendations and topics for further research; and (7) conducting a publishers' alert and providing materials for publishers. The ethnographic follow-up study produced a number of findings related to an understanding of the following: the impact and implementation of parent education workshops, the role of parenting models and ethnic differences in facilitating changes in parents, and parents who were abused as children. Case examples, coding sheets, a description of the implementation of parent training packages at each site, and range of effects data are appended. (Author/RH)
