Recommendation ID

Effectiveness of web-based parenting programmes:- Are web-based parenting programmes effective and cost effective for improving parenting and preventing recurrence of child abuse and neglect in families where child abuse or neglect has occurred?

Any explanatory notes
(if applicable)

Why this is important:- There is a lack of research data about the impact of web-based parenting programmes on families where child abuse or neglect has occurred. Our review for this guideline identified 1 small-scale US study of a web-based parenting programme for parents of children with abusive head injury.  Research would inform practitioners whether this type of parenting programme could be effective for families where child abuse or neglect has occurred, and if so which families would be most likely to benefit.
