The Use of Information and Communication Technologies in Family Support across Europe: A Narrative Review

Special issue

The Spanish National Working Group of EurofamNet has recently published in "Revista de Psicología Educativa" the Special Issue entitled "Evaluation of Programmes under the Positive Parenting Initiative in Spain"

This Special Issue aims to map the expansion of preventive family support programmes in Spain and to contrast the quality of the evidence against the prevention standards according with the European Family Support Network. Members of the Spanish Family Support Network made up of entities in several sectors identified 57 programmes implemented in Spain and filled in a formative evaluation sheet for each programme. The articles in this issue analysed the results of four main aspects in all programmes: description, implementation, evaluation, and impact/sustainability. The findings inform the scope and variety of support provided and the quality of programmes in Spain, providing guidelines for improvement and addressing challenges to reinforce quality assurance in child and family services.
