Key Elements of Centering Parenting
•
•
•
•
8 parent/infant dyads and 2 PHN facilitators
All activities occur within the group space
The group is conducted in a circle
Each session has an overall plan with core content;
emphasis may vary depending upon the needs of the
group
• Group members are involved in self-care activities,
weighing, examining, assessing infants and selves.
• Opportunity for socializing within the group is provided
• There is on-going evaluation of outcomes
14
Paradigm Shift
Traditional Care
• Directive
• Expert-led
• Education random
and provider
dependent
• Few opportunities for
socialization with
others
Group Care
• Facilitative
• Shared ownership of health
• More time for education,
shared with all
• Opportunity for
socialization, peer-to-peer
support

What have we learned so far…
Parents:
“I didn’t have a support
network: other
mothers who were
feeling the same
things I was feeling.”
“The most valuable
component is
connecting with other
parents.”
19
What have we learned so far…
PHNs were
excited about a
new model of
providing care
and having
additional
opportunities
for professional
growth.

Parenting Experts
There was considerable support from local parenting and
child development experts
“[The program] has really good adult learning principles
and parenting education practices as well… It’s
fabulous.”
“I really think that it’s only getting them there once.
Once you get them to [the group] they’re hooked. I truly
believe that.”

Stage 2- Current Work
– Received grant from the Alberta
Centre for Child, Family, and
Community Research

feasibility study of Centering
Parenting for 32 parent/infants in 2
locations
– Recruiting now!!! Intervention to

Research Questions for the Feasibility Study
Is it feasible to implement a Centering Parenting group
intervention In the Alberta context?
How do the pilot results compare to pre-intervention
measures, available local data, and/or established
norms?
