The Bed-ford Mountain Parenting Program

| May 21, 2015

 

The Bedford Mountain Parenting Program is run by human service professional, Maritza Martinez. This program provides weekly group and individual sessions that focus on various topics surrounding parenting such as discipline issues, forming healthy bonds with children, child development, and accessing community support and resources.

This program serves between 30 and 40 women who have been paroled from a correctional facility within the past six months. All participants must have at least one child under the age of 18. All participants must attend all sessions of the program. Most women complete the program in 6 months.

Women who have been incarcerated are separated from their children, often leading to a disrupted parental bond. Often, when they return to the family unit, they find that authority relationships have changed. They may be facing a lack of social support and may experience high stress levels that may negative impact their ability to parent effectively.

After reading the program description, think about potential evaluations and how they would be helpful. Use the template to answer each of the following questions.

If this was the first run of Maritza’s program and you conducted a formative evaluation, what would you expect the evaluation to reveal? How would this help Maritza for the future of her program?
If you were to conduct a process evaluation on Maritza’s program, what would your overarching goal(s) be and why?

Think about some of the objectives of this program. Follow the text’s examples to write two or three effective objectives for this program. If an outcome evaluation was done on those objectives, what would you expect the results to show?

How would you know the program is effective in achieving those objectives for their clients?
