From Strength to Strength has core sections for use with mainstream parent groups and specialist sections for groups in which other factors impact on parents’ capacity to parent effectively. The core modules provide developmentally appropriate sessions for use with parents who have children in different age groups. The specialist modules provide background information for facilitating parent groups which share similar, specific characteristics, such as: adolescent parents Indigenous Australian parents grandparents as primary carers step- and blended families parents from culturally and linguistically diverse communities parents of children with special needs parenting children in out-of-home care sole parents. Facilitators are also provided with a background briefing for parents in short-term or ongoing crises. These briefings cover: parenting after violence parents in prison parents involved with statutory child welfare services parents with intellectual disability parents with psychiatric illness parents with substance-abuse issues. Flexibility is a key feature of From Strength to Strength. In all the modules, the group decides on the program content and sequence. The manual is designed so that facilitators can ‘mix and match’ sessions from the core and specialist modules to suit parents’ needs. The authors, Pat Jewell and Prue Blackmore, have extensive experience with specialist parent groups. From Strength to Strength is filled with the wisdom of their practice, and is a relevant, informed parenting manual essential for anyone working with today’s parents in a group situation.
