Abstract

The Clark County Department of Family Services, Parenting Project, hereinafter referred to as Parenting Project, partnered with the University of Nevada, Las Vegas, School of Environmental and Public Affairs to participate in a program evaluation. The evaluation will serve as a tool to determine the effectiveness of the services delivered to the community by Parenting Project and to aid them in overall program improvement and implementation. This Program Evaluation focuses on two of the six core parenting classes that are currently offered free to the public, more specifically the Nurturing Parents and Families program and the ABC’s of Parenting. The identified programs utilize a pre-posttest inventory known as the Adult / Adolescent Parenting Inventory (AAPI-2). The AAPI-2 measures the risk of abusive parenting behaviors and is collected from each program participant. Data collected from the years 2005 - 2014 were used in the evaluation of the two programs.
