Transporting a Parenting Program to Prevent Violence against Children: Lessons Learned from Three Diverse Country Contexts

Date of webinar: 
18 Jun 2019
Start and finish time of webinar: 
10am Mountain Daylight Time ; 6pm CEST (Budapest Time)

About the webinar:

This FREE webinar will present findings from a multi-year international study that assessed the transportability of a violence-prevention parenting program in three diverse contexts: the chronic conflict zone of Gaza and the West Bank; Ishinomaki, Japan, a region recovering from a natural disaster; and a remote and underserved region of Indonesia characterized by deep poverty and illiteracy. In all three, parents experience chronic stress, and physical punishment is widespread and remain legal. 

About the speaker:

Dr. Ashley Stewart-Tufescu, a research fellow in the Departments of Community Health Sciences and Psychiatry at the University of Manitoba, will discuss the findings related to developing, adapting, implementing, and evaluating the Positive Discipline in Everyday Parenting program as well as lessons learned about transporting such programs to prevent punitive violence against some of the world’s most vulnerable children.
