Training Resources for Parent Education

Search Institute’s training resources for parent education: (Thanks to Nancy for sharing these with us!)

Speaking of Parenting: Introducing Developmental Assets to People Raising Kids is a kit with several training scripts in it, code for a downloadable ppt, activities, and samples of a number of our parenting resources. (Sort of a "presentation in a box" approach.) For further details read here. It is designed to be a one-shot introduction to the assets.

The training offered through Vision Training Associates is a Training of Trainers for Parenting Partners. We generally offer the TOT as a preconference session at the national HCHY conference and we will also be offering the TOT this summer (July 15-17) here in Minneapolis.
