Save the Date for our upcoming Nurturing Parenting Assessment Training on March 11th & 12th 2019 in Portland Oregon!
National Trainers Bettie Murchison, MA and Jennifer Moss, MFT will host a 2-day training with a focus on understanding the parenting assessments: Adult-Adolescent Parenting Inventory (AAPI) and the Nurturing Skill Competency Scale (NSCS) and administering them successfully. Participants will learn how to use the online versions of these two assessments to gather pre and post program outcome data. In addition, we will do treatment planning and hypothesis through a multi-cultural exploration. Several parts of the day will be taught experientially and hands on, including the popular Nurturing Boot camp with an array of activities that match the learning necessary to begin changing high risk beliefs!
Be prepared to experience intense experiential group work, activities, and powerful discussions. This is a trauma informed, strength based, needs based parent education program that is backed by 35 years of research and evidenced based credentials.
As with all Nurturing Parenting Trainings, expect a pleasant mix of fun, laughter and emotion.
This much anticipated training will close out the second day with an expert panel of NPP Trainers from various parts of the country to respond to Q & A about assessments and multi-cultural inclusion.
****There will be an optional bonus section on Day 2 where renowned expert NPP Trainer and Author Bettie Murchison of the soon to be released African-American Nurturing Program Supplement will preview her book and ask for feedback in the form of a focus group for any interested colleagues that would like to take part.
Adult-Adolescent Parenting Inventory (AAPI-2)
The AAPI-2 has proven invaluable in assessing the parenting attitudes and child-rearing beliefs of parents and adolescents. Founded on five parenting constructs known to lead to abusive parenting the AAPI provides scores that profile parents at risk for abusing and neglecting children.
