Developing Community Capacity to Scale Evidence-Based Parenting & Family Support Programs

Conference Year: 

2017

Primary Speaker name: 

Scaling evidence-based prevention and wellbeing programs to achieve population-level outcomes can present unique challenges to cross-sector partners. A logic model for developing community implementation capacity will be presented and discussed in the context of efforts to scale the Triple P – Positive Parenting Program in North Carolina. Triple P offers a system of parenting and family support interventions, including an option for parents with children who have disabilities or developmental delays, modeled on a public health approach. Examples of multi-level systems data that are guiding community improvement for program success and sustainability will be shared. Participants will be asked to reflect on the logic model as they share cross-sector experiences and lessons learned, particularly as related to scaling community-wide early intervention and education programs.
