Evidence and Policy: Exploring the WHO Parenting Intervention Guidelines to reduce child maltreatment and enhance parent-child relationships - Recording

who parenting guidelines webinar

Child maltreatment is a significant global public health issue, with parents and caregivers being the most common perpetrators. The WHO has recently released guidelines on parenting interventions to prevent maltreatment and enhance parent-child relationships for children aged 0-17 years.

Join Prof Frances Gardner and Sophia Backhaus, who led the team developing these guidelines, for a webinar exploring the policy recommendations of the guidelines as well as the underlying evidence from 65 countries in every region of the world. Beyond the question of whether parenting interventions are effective across different settings and subgroups, this webinar will also present evidence related to other key issues for making decisions about policy and practice, such as their cost effectiveness, balance of harms and benefits of parenting interventions, equity effects, social acceptability, and whether parenting interventions are in accordance with principles of human and child rights.
