Minimizing High-Risk Parenting: A Review of What Is Known and Consideration of Appropriate Preventive Intervention. Pediatric Round Table: 7.
Sasserath, Valerie J., Ed.
The conference papers and discussions presented in this volume convey current information and are intended to serve as a guide for intervention by health professionals and others involved with high-risk parenting situations. High-risk parenting is defined as a social condition in which normal patterns of parent/child behavior and interaction are disturbed. Contents focus on two major issues: (1) how interventions associated with the parenting process can be more effectively managed to help the child at risk and (2) the increasing recognition of the need for more effective communication between child health professionals and parents. Specifically, the volume includes sections devoted to three topic areas. Part I focuses on successful parenting, emphasizing basic adaptations, the black community, and factors in predicting success. Articles presented in part II discuss numerous concerns, including pregnancy, adolescent mothers, medically impaired infants, parents of the premature infant or child lost by death, pediatric social illnesses, and child abuse and neglect. Discussion in part III focuses on prevention of high-risk parenting outcomes and describes an intervention program and perinatal coaching. Summaries are provided following each section, and an appendix detailing funding and cost-benefit analysis of services for high-risk families and infants is included. (BJD)
