Description:

Small groups are a primary vehicle for effective parent learning and support, so understanding parent group process and managing group learning is a critical skill for parent education practice. Group Patent Education is devoted to training parent educators and family counsellors and represents a unique and important contribution to the growing field of parent education and support programmes. Campbell and Palm build upon the rich traditions of group parent education while incorporating contemporary theory and practice. Drawing upon their experiences as parent educators and their expertise as teacher educators, they combine different conceptual frameworks for understanding group process with practical strategies for leading parent groups that blend education and support. Group Parent Education leans toward the practical, with a "skill development" thrust and concrete examples as it attempts to address the complexity of working with diverse family groups. The book also includes a chapter on parent-child interaction time as a rich component that enhances parent discussion and learning in parent group settings. Campbell and Palm provide readers with resource material that should have value long after the course is over, including appendices with a self-assessment checklist for parent group leader competencies and annotated listings of web sites for parents.
