Improving Parent Interactions in the Center Setting Through Parent Training Sessions.
This practicum paper describes the design and implementation of a workshop series that acquainted parents with the growth and development of preschoolers. The series consisted of 10 sessions that corresponded to children's social, emotional, physical and cognitive areas of growth and development. Each workshop focused on the skills associated with one area, how the preschool curriculum incorporated that area and how parents can best encourage their children's success in the area with simple yet effective activities. Parents were given several activities to do at home and discuss during the workshop. By the end of the workshop series, parent interaction in the center had increased slightly in most areas evaluated.
