The 2014 Helping Families Change Conference attracted almost 380 delegates from 22 countries. The program displayed the relevance of parenting programs to a diverse range of problems including children at risk of being maltreated, children with chronic conditions, health related problems, conduct and attentional problems, family conflict, child anxiety disorders, children with a range of developmental disabilities, and couple relationship difficulties. The HFCC 2014 represents substantial progress in the movement towards an effective public health approach to supporting families and children grounded in scientific evidence and quality improvement.
