European Conference on Parenting Support - “Think Parents!”

The Netherlands Youth Institute in cooperation with the University of Amsterdam takes the initiative to organise the First European Conference on Parenting Support in partnership with the Council of Europe, Eurochild and many other organisations.

10-12 October 2012, The Hague, The Netherlands

Parenting support is an important and growing domain in professional practice, research and policy all over Europe. Evidence starts to show that parenting support can make a difference and knowledge is made available through research on what works in parenting support. Parenting support concerns practitioners, decision makers and researchers, as well as parents. We will bring these disciplines together to discuss how parenting support contributes to better outcomes for children and parents.

With round tables on policy, research and practice, renowned keynote speakers, field visits, 14 workshops and 35 presentations on parenting support from all over Europe, Think Parents will be a lively event.
