Training to support implementation
Pre-service staff training
Paraprofessional parenting consultants underwent more than 100 hours of training that covered the perinatal period, community resources, child abuse and child abuse reporting, and team building. Training also included the basics of implementing a task-centered service approach, in which consultants focused on identifying goals to improve parental self-care and child care and enhancing parents’ ability to identify and complete tasks to meet their goals. Certification was not required.
