Implementation Manual for the Parent Education Expansion Project. A Guide for Developing a Community-Based Parent Education Program.
Fields, Walter; Rosen, Paulette
Designed for community-based agencies, churches, and educational institutions who operate adult and/or family programs and those who wish to develop parent education projects, this manual describes the content and process of developing a community-based parent education project. It is intended to provide a model for organization and curriculum, so that new programs can improve on the work that has been done. Generalizing from the experiences of the Parent Education Expansion Project, the manual offers two areas of guidance which compose the two major sections. First, the basic concepts and program model underlying a community-based parent education project are discussed. Second, a strategy for implementation of these concepts is outlined. Specific topics include the program (ongoing sessions, special workshops, newsletters), staff, staff training, evaluation, coordinating community resources, and funding. Appendixes, amounting to approximately one-half of the manual, offer specific guidelines for parent educator training, relevant references, and useful needs assessment and evaluation forms. (YLB)
