Fiche synthèse

1. Objectifs


Intentions :
«The goal of this article is to identify, based on experiential knowledge, the factors that influence the recruitment of parents of hard-to-reach families into prevention programs targeting behavior problems in early childhood. The article has two objectives: 1) identify the factors that influence parent recruitment based on the perceptions of the actors concerned (parents, practitioners, and administrators); and 2) determine the respective importance of these factors.» (p. 128-129)

2. Méthode


Échantillon/Matériau :
«Research participants were recruited on a voluntary basis, in urban and rural areas, throughout the Eastern Townships (one of the 17 administrative regions of Québec, Canada).

[The sample contains] 51 participants (19 parents, 19 practitioners, and 13 administrators), of whom the majority (96%) were women […].» (p. 129)

3. Résumé


«By combining their knowledge through a concept mapping process, the parents, practitioners, and administrators successfully produced a portrait of the factors that influence parent recruitment. They structured these factors into twelve concepts, all of which were deemed important for favoring recruitment. Furthermore, these twelve concepts are encompassed in five broad dimensions that are consistent with the notion of an ecological model. This study shows that parent recruitment into prevention services targeting behavior problems in early childhood is complex and multifactorial. The combination of the twelve concepts that were identified provides access to a general understanding of the factors that influence parent recruitment into prevention activities targeting behavior problems in early childhood. By improving our understanding of these factors, this study makes it possible to believe that the scope and effects of preventive services can ultimately be improved, by reaching the families of children that they will benefit the most.» (p. 134)
