    Parent Education: Working with Groups and Individuals revises Group Parent Education, first published in 2004, by introducing new concepts and strategies and expanding the approach for parent groups to include working individually with parents.

    This edition includes the earlier book's classic content on the rationale, assumptions, history, and evolution of group parent education, as well as the conceptual frameworks for understanding group dynamics and the role of the group leader. It builds on this foundation with new resources and service delivery models. It introduces a continuum of parent education services in a conceptual framework from prevention to intervention, and focuses on relationship-building between the parent educator and parents. It also examines common issues and challenges in the parent educator role.

    Designed to serve as a core textbook for parent and family life education classes, Parent Education incorporates new activities related to the content, along with video examples and discussion prompts. It is ideal for upper division and graduate level courses in parent education, social work, nursing, mental health, and early childhood education.

    I have been eagerly anticipating the release of Parent Education: Working with Groups and Individuals. I prepare pre-service parent educators in a higher education institution and the relevance of this text to my curriculum development and teaching methods courses is unmatched. Deb Campbell and Glen Palm offer both a historically minded and forward-thinking text that will no doubt support the growth of novice as well as master parent educators.
