Formatted Abstract/Summary
There is an increasing international recognition of the importance of service providers and agencies delivering evidence-based interventions to promote the well being of children and youths. The main aim of these providers is to prevent serious problems involving young people, including major mental health problems, child maltreatment, antisocial behavior, and drug and alcohol abuse (Geoff-Martins et al., 2008).

Policy initiatives from regions as diverse as Australasian, Europe and the United Kingdom, North and South America, the Middle East, and Asia have led to unprecedented interest on the role of parenting in the promotion of children's well-being and the prevention of maltreatment and mental health problems in children.

As a reflection of this. interest, the Council of Europe has called on each of its 47 member states to establish positive parenting programs. The British government has considered the provision of parenting services to be sufficiently important that it has established the National Academy of Parenting Practitioners to promote the rise of evidence-based parenting interventions in England. Similar national initiatives to improve the availability of evidence-based parenting programs (EEBPPs) have occurred in most Scandinavian countries and in various European countries such as Germany, Belgium, Switzerland, and the Netherlands. The United Nations has recently released a draft report that examines how to make existing EBPPs available to developing countries in a culturally appropriate manner. The Commonwealth Government of Australia and all state governments. have policies and funding streams to support parents in the task of raising their children. Interest in promoting parenting programs. is not confined to wealthier regions such as North America, the United Kingdom, and Europe but has also occurred in Asia, the Netherlands Antilles. and the Middle East.
