Schools

The Parenting Young Children project has partnered with the Mesa Unified School District to increase family engagement in evidence-based parenting programs to help maximize the public health benefits of these programs. The Bridges to High School program previously partnered with the Cartwright School District to conduct a randomized clinical trial to evaluate the program and is now working closely with the Tempe Unified School District to evaluate a redesigned Bridges program that has been adapted for feasibility and sustainability in the context of real world delivery. The REACH for Personal and Academic Success anxiety treatment and prevention program has been used in the Scottsdale Unified, Kyrene, and Roosevelt School Districts. The Family Check-Up has been implemented in 31 public middle schools in Oregon and will soon be implemented in another 7 Oregon schools. Drs. Dishion and Mauricio are also collaborating with researchers at the University of Chile and the Inter-American Development Bank to implement and evaluate, in 10 Chilean schools, a video-based parent training intervention adapted from the Family Check-Up.
