Universal Strengths-Based Parenting Support in Pediatric Health Care for Families with Very Young Children Following the Flint Water Crisis
Characterize neighborhood-level stressors and resilience factors in relation to the disaster and to poverty more broadly using geocoded, census-linked Speak to Your Health survey data before, during, and in the aftermath of the disaster. Assess impacts of promotion of parenting on responsive parenting and child development in the aftermath of a disaster in a high poverty community. Determine pathways by which promotion of positive parenting results in reductions of stressor-related impacts, including determination of the roles of specific proximal factors (e.g., parent stress-reactivity, parenting stress, parent-child relationship, positive parenting activities and verbal interactions).
