Included in SAMHSA's National Registry of Evidence-Based Programs & Practices. 


The Evidence-Based Nurturing Parenting Programs are building Protective Factors in families that when present increase the health and well-being of children and families.

Beginning in 2014 through 2015, NREPP went through a major redesign and relaunch. Beginning on November 23, 2015, all reviewed programs on NREPP refer to those that have been reviewed under the new guidelines published in the July 7, 2015 Federal Register. The 356 programs reviewed under the previous criteria are now referred to as “legacy” programs and will be re-reviewed under the new guidelines over the next 4 years (2015 through 2018).

The following reports are listed below and on NREPP's website:

The Nurturing Parenting Programs are recognized internationally as valid and reliable programs offered in different Home Based, Group Based and a combination Home Based and Group Based models. Based on the number of sessions (dosage), Nurturing Parenting Programs are designed for Primary Prevention (education); Secondary Prevention (intervention); and Tertiary Prevention (treatment).
