Parents Anonymous has built its child abuse prevention program around a concept of shared parent leadership within community-based organizations. The national Parents Anonymous organization supports the development of effective shared parent leadership through an extensive program of training, technical assistance, publications, and research. Training and technical assistance are offered for government agencies, community-based organizations, professionals, and parents.
A core piece of the Parents Anonymous training and technical assistance program is Shared Leadership in Action. This program can be customized to meet specific needs of public and private agencies and communities in developing the leadership skills needed to effectively partner with parents. The program has seven key components, including needs assessment and planning, organizational development, training, ongoing technical assistance, staff support, recruitment of parent leaders, and evaluation.
