Levels of parenting education include:
Primary Education for parents, para-professionals and professionals seeking to improve parenting skills and knowledge. Parenting services may include information, referrals, resources, support, classes and workshops. These services and programs are for the general population.
Secondary Education for parents and guardians experiencing a variety of life stressors that may impede or impact family functioning. The goal of secondary education is to enhance functioning by learning new skills and increasing knowledge. These programs are appropriate for families who are at risk, involved in social services, or court systems, as well as the general population.
Tertiary Education programs are the highest level of parent education and are geared toward parents and guardians who need comprehensive, family based programs that are longer in duration and include assessment of competency. Families who are involved with tertiary programs are often trying to treat, prevent, or reduce recurrence of abuse or neglect.
Clinical Services (individual or family therapy) are provided by licensed professionals prior to or in conjunction with parent education in order to increase effectiveness and positive outcomes.
Participating agencies of HRPEN provide information, support and education to professionals, para-professionals, parents, guardians and families in Hampton Roads.
