Meaningful Parent Leadership: Building Effective Parent/Practitioner Collaboration

Newly Revised Parent Leadership Guidebook is Available

Parent-Practitioner collaboration has many benefits for families and practitioners. For families, the benefits include opportunities to give input on the programs and services they receive, increasing their sense of personal achievement, and providing a model of leadership for their family and other families. For practitioners, the benefits are also significant. Parent-Practitioner collaboration can improve relationships between families and providers, as well as improve efforts to recruit and retain program participants.

Meaningful Parent Leadership: Building Effective Parent/Practitioner Collaboration is designed to provide guidance to Community-Based Child Abuse Prevention (CBCAP) State Lead Agencies (SLA), and parents as well as other child abuse prevention, family support, and child welfare programs and organizations.

The guidebook helps participants to explore personal beliefs and practices around sharing leadership with parents and will help both parents and practitioners move toward more authentic partnerships.
