Parallel Paper Session
The research reported (Lindsay, Band, Cullen & Cullen, 2008a) took place in England in September-October 2007, in all 19 local authority areas involved in a government-funded pilot of evidence-based parenting programmes (‘Parenting Early Intervention Pathfinder’) (Lindsay, Davis, Band, Cullen, Cullen, Strand, Hasluck, Evans, Stewart-Brown, 2008b). The research focused on professional views about school involvement in the delivery of three parenting programmes: Triple P (Sanders, Markie-Dadds & Turner, 2003), Incredible Years (Webster-Stratton & Hancock, 1998) and Strengthening Families, Strengthening Communities (Steele, Marigna, Tello & Johnston, 2000). The paper also refers to relevant findings about English school involvement in a range of other types of parenting support (Lindsay, Davis, Strand, Cullen, Band, Cullen, Davis, Hasluck, Evans, Stewart-Brown, 2009).
The research questions were:
· In what ways, and to what extent, were schools involved?
· Why did some schools choose to be involved and others not?
· What were the barriers and facilitators of school involvement?
· What were the benefits of school involvement and for whom?
The paper interprets the findings in the light of systems theory (Bronfenbrenner, 1979; McCartney, 1999) and theory about professional-family partnership (Davis, Day, Bidmead, 2002) and parental involvement in parenting support (McCurdy and Daro, 2001).
