Bill Doherty

Through parent education, parents can reflect on the public or community dimensions of family life, and not just on the private or personal dimensions. Community engaged parent education weaves community issues into everyday parenting topics and encourages parents to engage in citizen deliberation and civic action on issues related to the well-being of children.

In this webinar, you'll learn from Bill Doherty, Ph.D., professor of family social science at the University of Minnesota, the principles and core skills of community engaged parent education and receive a demonstration of some of those skills via video illustration.

Approved for 1 CFLE Contact Hour continuing education credit.


If you tune in to this webinar, you'll then be able to:

  1. Describe the core principles of community engaged parent education
  2. Discuss the core skill of surfacing public issues affecting parent and children
  3. Identify the range of action steps parents can take as citizens
