Historical Background

Our research and brainstorming determined that pediatric health care providers, family counselors, family life educators, clergy, family mental health agencies, family courts, adoption agencies, child protection services, day care programs, foster parent programs, private and public school programs, and numerous other mental health care providers who support parents and their children would view a treatment guide focusing on techniques of developing positive parent/child relationships as invaluable.

Throughout more than a decade of teaching parent education classes, parents frequently ask for recommendations or referrals to independent counselors who would provide ongoing guidance or therapy consistent with the principles taught in the parenting classes. We have aspired to incorporate numerous treatment interventions that will allow the family counselor to offer the same positive and effective strategies for positive discipline, limit setting, effective communication, relationship building, character enhancement, parental modeling, and responsibility training incorporated in several of the most popular and effective parenting programs that are presented by dedicated parent educators worldwide. References to several of these recommended parent programs are listed in Appendix A.
