Abstract

A singular parent-support program is limited in its ability to address multiple child and family needs. One innovative solution is braiding, a process in which two evidence-based programs are systematically combined as a newly tailored, cohesive curriculum. In this paper we describe the systematic braiding of two parent-support curricula, Parents as Teachers® and SafeCare®. We highlight implementation challenges to inform future planning and braiding efforts. Based on qualitative data (n=13), we discuss five lessons learned, including identifying a pedagogical approach and sustainability at the model- and site-level. Implications and future directions for braiding and implementation are also discussed.

Resumen

El programa de apoyo parental en solitario se ve limitado por su capacidad para abordar las múltiples necesidades de niños y familias. Una solución innovadora es el braiding (enlazado), un proceso en el que se combinan sistemáticamente dos programas basados en evidencia, como currículo cohesivo y de nuevo diseño. En este documento describimos el braiding sistemático de dos currículos de apoyo parental, «Parents as Teachers®»y «SafeCare®». Hacemos hincapié en las dificultades de su introducción para informar sobre la planificación futura y los resultados del braiding. Basándonos en los datos cualitativos (n=13), comentamos cinco lecciones aprendidas, incluyendo la identificación de un enfoque pedagógico y la sostenibilidad en relación con el modelo y la localización. También abordamos las direcciones futuras en cuanto a braiding y su introducción.
