Parenting education is a key element of service provision in many human services settings. Whether parents are involved in school-related activities, post-divorce mediation, the child welfare system, mental health services, or self-enrichment programs, parenting education programs touch the lives and future welfare of thousands of children and their families. The need, therefore, for high-quality, standardized training in parenting education is a pressing concern in the human services.
The LSU School of Social Work Certificate in Parenting Education will provide foundational knowledge in the delivery of parenting education services. The content of the certificate curriculum is guided by the 9 areas of core competencies for parenting educators developed by LAPEN, including:
Full 7-Session Parent Training Certificate Program - $245.00
Seven individual training sessions, starting on February 12, 2014 and running through May 7, 2014. There must be a minimum number of registered attendees for each session to be held. Sign up early!
