Parent Education Series
Below is a list of topics that have been presented in schools, conferences, and workshops that are geared toward groups consisting mainly of parents. These lectures have been done individually or as part of a series. Each topic has been presented numerous times and outcome measures have been used over the past two decades to maximize audience participation, understanding, and enjoyment.
When choosing to do a series, schools have found it easier to present the series under a catchy heading such as “Lunch and Learn Series” or “Coffee Chat Series” so that name recognition and marketing materials (flyers, email, etc.) can be consistent and encourage continued attendance and participation.
By being CONNECTED, we will help you design your marketing materials and strategies to increase attendance and motivate parents to get involved.

What is STEP®?
The Systematic Training for Effective Parenting (STEP)® program has been around since 1976. It is based on the principles of psychology that were introduced by Dr. Alfred Adler in the early 1900’s. Dr. Adler’s approach to psychology was one of teaching, training, and helping people understand by making things clear, concise, and user-friendly. When STEP® was first published, the basic idea was the same … teaching parents how to be more effective in raising their children by helping them understand the basic concepts of child psychology.
For over 30 years, the effectiveness of STEP® has been researched and numerous articles have been published demonstrating the positive impact this program has on families regardless of educational, cultural, or economic differences. STEP® has been shown to change parental expectations, attitudes, and interactions toward children.
Research has also demonstrated that incorporating STEP® into already existing programs such as psychological treatment centers; schools - both mainstream and special needs; etc. the children are more likely to be successful in their treatment programs and school performance.
Who Is The Presenter?
For over 20 years, Dr. Snow has been one of the leaders in the field of parent education by conducting research on the effectiveness of STEP® and also on how to be effective in teaching the materials to parents from various socio-economic levels. He has implemented parent education courses in prisons, day treatment centers, long-term residential facilities, as well as school settings. Regardless of the unique or challenging settings, Dr. Snow has a proven track record of being successful in delivering education and training to a diversified group of parents. He has been asked to present his research and experience both nationally and internationally and has published numerous research articles in peer-reviewed journals.
