Single Session Email Consultation for Parents: An Evaluation of Its Effect on Empowerment
Nieuwboer, Christa C.; Fukkink, Ruben G.; Hermanns, Jo M. A.
British Journal of Guidance & Counselling, v43 n1 p131-143 2015
This study evaluated the effect of single session email consultation (SSEC) on empowerment of parents. Practitioners in a control group (n = 19) received no training and practitioners in an experimental group (n = 21) were trained to use empowerment-oriented techniques in online consultation. Parental empowerment was measured (n = 96) through a questionnaire based on the Family Empowerment Scale before and after receiving advice from a trained or a non-trained practitioner. Parents showed a significant increase in the subscale of self-confidence (Cohen's d = 0.33). Study findings lend support to the feasibility of SSEC as a brief intervention to improve self-confidence of parents. A training for practitioners did not influence the outcomes.
