Section 2, "The Exploring Parenting Program," outlines the components of the program, details the program's goals, and provides an overview of the 20 thematic sessions and materials. Section 3, "Leading Exploring Parenting Sessions," describes the leader's role, suggests preparation methods, shows how to use the individual session plans and the parent materials, gives specific instructions on how to implement each of the training methods, and provides suggestions regarding evaluation and external resources. the last section includes transcripts of 10 films available with the Exploring Parenting materials and a record transcript "A Case of Family Stress," used to facilitate group discussion.
