First-time parent interactive parenting intervention (Infant-Net)

This is a completed project.


This project tests the effects of an adaptation to an empirically proven parenting program. An existing home visiting program is adapted for delivery via the Internet and enhanced with remote coaching. This project provides parents of young infants with an “eyeball” computer camera, Internet connection, phone coaching and technical training/support for six months to evaluate the digital translation.
