Nurturing Parenting Programs Research and Validation Studies - 2015 to 1983

Randomized Controlled Trial is a controlled trial study in which participants are assigned to a study group. In a randomized controlled trial, participants are assigned to treatment conditions at random. Procedures are controlled to ensure that all participants in all study groups are treated the same except for the factor that is unique to their group. The unique factor is the type of intervention they receive.

The primary goal of conducting an RCT is to test whether an intervention works by comparing it to a control condition, usually either no intervention or an alternative intervention.

Pre-Post Longitudinal Follow-Up Study

Pre-Post with Longitudinal Follow-Up assesses whether the gains made at posttest have been maintained by either administering a third AAPI at test for differences from posttest to longitudinal testing usually anywhere from 6 months to 2 years after the last class ended.

The key to this model is to determine if families have been re-charged with Child Abuse or Neglect since they ended their program. The goal of Nurturing Parenting Program is to stop the re-abuse of children in families who completed the Nurturing Parenting Program.
