Research Sought to Improve Capacity of Parents and Caregivers

1/9/2008:   The National Institutes of Health (NIH) has issued an announcement soliciting research applications aimed at increasing the parenting skills and capacities of parents and caregivers to improve the health outcomes of their young and adolescent children.

According to the NIH website,
Interventions targeting two or more risk factors that indicate ineffective parenting practices that simultaneously focus on multiple high-risk adolescent health behaviors and intentional behaviors, are fundamental to this initiative. Interventions that target the reduction of a broad range of family risk factors and simultaneously build upon protective factors are highly encouraged. Parents and similarly situated caregivers of children 10 to 18 years of age are the targets of this initiative.
