Your program kit contains 36 minutes of video dubbed in Spanish to use throughout the class to help parents understand key points. The video vignettes clearly illustrate the right and wrong ways to approach co-parenting conversations. The families portrayed in the video reflect families in every community.
In this segment, observe two ways to handle a conflict. Which one is likely to have the best outcome?
According to “Parent Education to Strengthen Families and Reduce the Risk of Maltreatment,” a 2013 publication of the US Department of Health and Human Services,
“Research has consistently shown that active learning approaches have greater success than passive approaches (CDC, 2009). Interactive methods include activities such as group discussion, role playing, active modeling, homework exercises, and reviewing videos of effective parenting approaches (Brown, 2005).”
With video, activities, “show and tell,” group discussion, and weekly Family Enrichment Activities (homework), Active Parenting for Stepfamilies meets all those requirements and more!
