SCHMIDT, Beatriz; STAUDT, Ana Cristina Pontello  and  WAGNER, Adriana. Interventions to promote positive parenting practices: an integrative review. Contextos Clínic [online]. 2016, vol.9, n.1, pp. 01-18. ISSN 1983-3482.

The aim of this research was to study and analyze interventions meant to promote positive parenting practices, emphasizing parents of children in normative development situations. An integrative review was carried out in PsycINFO, SciELO and PePSIC databases, considering pre-established descriptors - positive parenting practices, intervention, training - for publications from 2005 to 2015. The selected sample consisted of 12 articles. Interventions emphasized mainly promoting positive parenting in low socioeconomic status families, considering especially mothers as participants. The modalities developed were: groups of parents, home visits and exclusive family attendance in health services. In general, interventions showed satisfactory results with respect to the proposed objectives. Brazilian works on the subject were not identified within the investigative databases. The analysis of the international scenario on interventions promoting positive parenting practices suggests a lack of investment in family health promotion.

Keywords : positive parenting practices; intervention; training; parent child relations; family relations.
