ParentCorps in the Spotlight

The evidence in support of ParentCorps’ impact and ease of implementation has been reviewed in a number of independently compiled registries and publications:

ParentCorps on SAMHSA's National Registry of Evidence-based Programs and Practices (NREPP): SAMHSA's National Registry of Evidence-based Programs and Practices (NREPP) is a searchable online registry of scientifically-based mental health and substance abuse interventions that have been reviewed and rated by independent reviewers. ParentCorps was reviewed and rated, and added to the registry in September 2012. SAMSHA is the federal government's Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration.

ParentCorps is included in the Compendium of Evidenced-Based Parenting Interventions, a collection of parenting interventions compiled by the National Center for Parent, Family and Community Engagement for the Office of Head Start, Administration for Children and Families within the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. This Compendium is intended to help early childhood stakeholders including schools, early childhood programs, and community-based organizations understand the evidentiary foundations of the available parenting interventions for families of young children and to assess the fit of the intervention with the needs of families served.

ParentCorps is described in Child Trends’ “What Works for Reducing Problem Behaviors in Early Childhood: Lessons from Experimental Evaluations”, a research brief synthesizing experimental evaluations of 50 programs that target problem behaviors in early childhood. ParentCorps was reviewed and rated as one of eight programs found to successfully reduce both internalizing and externalizing behaviors among children ages birth to five. Child Trends is a nonprofit, nonpartisan research center that provides valuable information and insights on the well-being of children and youth.
