Parenting Program Evaluation: Monrovia, Liberia
The purpose of this project is to evaluate a parenting intervention implemented across five communities in Monrovia, Liberia in collaboration with the International Rescue Committee. Caregivers of children ages 3 to 5 will be enrolled in the study and randomly assigned to one of three conditions: (1) a group parenting intervention focused on behavioral parent training skills, (2) the group intervention paired with home visits, or (3) a waitlist control group. The trial will measure the impact of the intervention on caregiving behaviors, such as use of corporal punishment, and child well-being.
Results will inform the development and improvement of family-based interventions in low-resource urban contexts.
