Call for abstract submissions
This conference is a scientific research meeting focusing on Triple P – Positive Parenting Program research around the world. The HFCC offers presentations, symposia, and workshops across a broad range of domains related to children, parents, and families. We are currently accepting submissions of abstracts for the 2016 HFCC. All abstracts submitted must relate to research involving Triple P. This can include research relating to program and service evaluations, basic and applied research in program design and development, research focusing on theory development and testing, and consumer focused research. The theme of the 2016 HFCC is:
- Strength in Diversity
Abstracts will be accepted in one of two streams:
- Empirical research (e.g. randomised controlled trials, survey research, mixed methods research – both qualitative and quantitative)
- Implementation and clinical practice (e.g. learnings from implementation, clinical case series)
The Helping Families Change Conference is a leading international scientific event. The conference is of interest to practitioners, policy makers, and researchers working with families in the health, education, and welfare sectors, and to graduate students with an interest in child and family issues. Those attending will be presented with state-of-the-art knowledge, contribute to debate, and engage in hands-on practice with leaders in the field of family intervention.
The event will be supplemented by an exciting social program that will enable delegates to grow their international networks and experience the best that Banff has to offer.
Further details will be provided in coming weeks, such as information about registration and keynote speaker details.
