Professor and Blueprints Advisory Board member Frances Gardner gave a talk at the University of Colorado Boulder titled “Parenting Interventions Globally: Are There Differential Effects Across Countries, Cultures and Social Groups?”

In this talk, Dr. Gardner spoke about her work analyzing intervention moderator effects using both individual participant data and aggregate level meta-analysis, including some large systematic reviews she is conducting for the World Health Organization (WHO) Guideline on parenting interventions to reduce maltreatment of children. These studies have implications for understanding the effects of interventions on health and social inequities, and for adaptation strategies. She also spoke about her WHO and UNICEF collaboration, “Parenting for Lifelong Health”, which involves developing, adapting, and testing parenting programs in sustainable systems in low-and middle-income countries, with recent randomized trials in the public health system in Thailand, the conditional cash transfer system in the Philippines, and in three middle-income countries in southeastern Europe. Frances Gardner, DPhil, is a Professor of Child and Family Science in the Department of Social Policy and Intervention, and Director of the Evidence-Based Social Intervention and Policy Evaluation, at Oxford University.
