New eLearning tools can change parenting in Australia
The Parenting Research Centre has released a series of free eLearning modules designed to help change the narrative around parenting in Australia in a way that better supports children and families to thrive.
The new eLearning modules form part of the Reframing Parenting project, which the Parenting Research Centre has been leading alongside the Frameworks Institute, with support from the Department of Social Services.
Based on research involving more than 7500 Australians, the Reframing Parenting project is an important national effort to help children by driving more productive conversations about parenting.
An important part of this work is assisting professionals and organizations that work with families to become skilled and confident at implementing the Reframing Parenting findings.
To this end, the Parenting Research Centre has developed a series of online training modules that will be made available free of charge to anyone who is interested in learning more about effectively framing communications on parenting and parenting support.
Annette Michaux, Director of Policy & Practice at the Parenting Research Centre says the Reframing Parenting research has the potential to transform the way parents are supported in Australia, and in doing so make sure more children have the support they need to thrive.
“This training is designed for anyone whose work focuses on children and families – be they teachers, policymakers, or community service professionals,” Michaux said. “We hope it will challenge commonly held ideas and promote ways of talking about parenting that is more effective in engaging and equipping parents to support their childrens’ healthy development.”
Parents play such an important role in our society, and Michaux says it’s vital we support them well.
