research governance

Literature review published by the Scottish Government which draws together existing knowledge on assessing and evaluating parenting interventions. In conducting the literature review, the research team was interested in re-examining the historical policy context to locate the rationale for the introduction of Parenting Orders and the apparent under use of the provisions and the evidence of risk and protective factors and the interrelated issues of antisocial behaviour and child care, alongside effective approaches to family service provision.

Research report published by the research group in the Scottish Government Education Analytical Services Division, which provides an overview of strategic approaches to parenting support at local level, looking at strategic development within Community Health Partnerships and Local Authorities. It was published in conjunction with two other documents: Support and Services for Parents: A Review of Practice Development in Scotland and Support and Services for Parents: A Review of the Literature in Engaging and Supporting Parents.
