  • Improvements in positive parenting style post intervention

The National Implementation Service is committed to continued data collection to build a UK evidence base which is extended beyond the original study conducted by Dr Patricia Chamberlain in San Diego, USA.

The UK data set was reported in a paper published in 2016, titled: “We know it works but does it last?” The implementation of the KEEP foster and kinship carer training programme in England. For a summary of that paper, click here.
