This volume (Volume 5) details the compilation of information and program materials and resources undertaken for the Parenting Information Project.
Compilation of information and program materials
To build an overview of the various types of information available and the format in which they are presented across Australia, a brief compilation of materials was undertaken. This comprised four components:
collection of examples of information and program material throughout the consultation process
development and distribution of a survey to obtain information about the structure, evaluation evidence and future suggestions for improving programs currently operating across Australia
investigation of websites providing information pertinent to parenting
investigation of videos providing information pertinent to parenting
A summary of the process and key findings of these tasks is presented below.
Collected examples of information and program material
During the consultation phase, professionals were given the opportunity to provide relevant parenting program and support resource material. The purpose of gathering materials was to build an overview of the various types of information available and the format in which they are presented. Note that this compilation is not comprehensive. It is neither an audit of material nor a critique.
