The capabilities and uses of Parent’s Voice – incorporating PEEM – the Parent Empowerment and Efficacy Measure

The Parent Empowerment and Efficacy Measure (PEEM) uses a strengths-focused approach to measure caregivers’ sense of control or capacity to engage confidently with the realities of being a parent. It was developed as part of a research-practice partnership in collaboration with members of a community-based family support service.  It encourages caregivers to reflect on their strengths, and any influences within their environment that may help or hinder their capacity to achieve their parenting goals.

The PEEM is designed for use with parents or carers of toddlers to tweens. The measure is short and practical. It has twenty positively worded items that relate to personal and child wellbeing, coping skills, relationship building, and communication.

The PEEM has many uses. It can serve as a conversation starter for parents and professionals as they work together. It can also be used to support comprehensive evaluation within family support programs and community organisations. In particular, it can help agencies to review the effects of the resources and services they deliver for individual parents, groups of parents, and families within the community more broadly. The PEEM can be delivered using an engaging online format called PARENT’S VOICE.

This webinar will introduce Parent’s Voice and discuss its use by practitioners and researchers.

Presented by Dr Kate Freiberg, Principal Research Fellow – Griffith Criminology Institute.

The power of a critical friend – Collective Change Facilitation

Do you ever wish you could call a friend to bounce ideas around or ask them for their opinion? Do you wish you had someone you could rely on to provide you with honest but constructive advice? Or someone who can keep an eye on the big picture and ask those tricky questions that get you thinking? Collective Change Facilitators (sometimes known as Collective Impact Facilitators) are an important part of the Prevention Translation and Support System being developed as part of the CREATE-ing Pathways to Child Wellbeing project. Collective Change Facilitators work to strengthen Community Coalition functioning, a factor that has been linked to coalition success when influencing positive community change. They support collaboration and relationships within and external to the community coalition by working alongside members of a partnership to enhance their functioning while also building capacity.

As part of this presentation, we will unpack what it means to be a Collective Change Facilitator and discuss the impact of a critical friend walking alongside you. 

This presentation will be led by CREATE Project Team member and Collective Change Facilitator Dr Sara Branch and Collective Change Facilitator Ms Charmaine Stubbs from The Salvation Army.

Coalition Wellbeing – Reviewing how well your collaboration works – the value of measuring the quality of community partnerships to enhance functionality and amplify impact

The natural fluctuations that occur in communities and community coalitions underline the importance of establishing a routine process for all partners to engage in regular reflection about coalition wellbeing and functioning. Self-review can be a powerful catalyst for growth and achieving shared goals. Collecting information that promotes reflection forms a core part of a continuous learning and improvement cycle and can help coalition members strengthen the way they work together to enhance outcomes for their community. The Coalition Wellbeing Survey was developed as a tool for use by community coalitions to review their collective practices in a systematic and replicable way. It helps coalitions gather reliable data on factors that are known to underpin successful collaborative initiatives.

Within the CREATE-ing Pathways to Child Wellbeing Project the Coalition Wellbeing Survey has been used by community coalitions throughout Queensland and NSW to measure coalition wellbeing and strengthen their collaboration. This presentation will discuss the value of using measurement tools like the Coalition Wellbeing Survey to strengthen collaboration.  

This presentation will be led by CREATE Project Co-director Professor Ross Homel and Principal Research Fellow Dr Kate Freiberg.

 Getting the measure of child wellbeing with Rumble’s Quest: A tool for schools and their communities

The voices of children are often missing when decisions are made about how best to enhance their wellbeing. Rumble’s Quest was developed so decision makers would have a reliable way to engage primary-school-aged children directly in the measurement of school- and community-wide social and emotional wellbeing.

Rumble’s Quest is a robust and reliable measure of wellbeing designed specifically for 6-to-12 year old children. It offers a scientifically validated and developmentally-appropriate process for assessing multiple dimensions of child wellbeing. It is presented as an engaging computer game, so children can respond to the questions in a natural way.

Rumble’s Quest is an effective tool for assessment, program planning, and program evaluation. It helps schools and other child-serving organisations to: understand children’s strengths; plan supportive action in response to identified opportunities for growth; and review the effects of those actions once undertaken.

This webinar will introduce you to the Rumble’s Quest package. This includes the measure itself, and a management dashboard that offers training modules and reporting tools that empower schools and service agencies to collect, review, and act on data to tailor initiatives that promote the wellbeing of children in their community.

Presented by Dr Kate Freiberg, Principal Research Fellow – Griffith Criminology Institute.

The power of data for community coalitions: Deciding together – risk and protective factor – methodology

In recent years many communities have invested in preparing ‘State of the Child’ reports for their areas in order to guide decisions about how to improve the wellbeing of local children.
The CREATE Deciding Together methodology takes these efforts to a new level by incorporating the voices of children through Rumble’s Quest and by organising a wide range of data about child wellbeing within a risk and protective factors framework derived from decades of longitudinal research.

The CREATE Deciding Together methodology brings together three data sources: the Australian Early Development Census (AEDC); Government and Australian Bureau of Statistics child-related indicators; and wellbeing data derived from Rumble’s Quest.

One thing that makes the Deciding Together methodology different from the ‘State of the Child’ reports is its reliance on the longitudinal research literature to identify 23 risk and protective factors for child wellbeing. In other words, risk and protective factors do not emerge from community data but from the large number of long-term rigorous studies that have been carried out in fields such as developmental psychology, health, criminology, education and substance abuse. The Deciding Together methodology combines this knowledge from science, with suburb level data to inform goal setting and planning for targeted action.

Within this webinar, we present preliminary results emerging from this CREATE Project initiative. Our analyses so far confirm the power of the Deciding Together methodology for assessing child needs at a small area level, revealing wide variability between suburbs within communities.

Presented by Professor Ross Homel, and Dr Jacqui Homel, Lecturer – School of Criminology and Criminal Justice.
