African-American families at risk for child maltreatment.
EBPP is a parenting skill-building program created specifically for parents of African American children. It was originally designed as a 15-session program to be used with small groups of parents. Recently, a one-day seminar version of the program for large numbers of parents has been created. Since the late 1980s, EBPP has been disseminated via instructor training workshops conducted nationwide. These workshops provided training for over 3,500 professionals from 40 states.
