CASE STUDY: Community-based Conscious Discipline program reduces corporal punishment, improves cognition in Caribbean
In Grenada, a Caribbean island nation of 110,000 people, corporal punishment is widespread. Harsh child-rearing and excessive corporal punishment hinder the development of executive functions such as focus, organization, emotional regulation and impulse control. A team including neuropsychologist Dr. Barbara Landon developed a community-based program focused on parent education, teaching Conscious Discipline through home visits and a mobile resource unit. Parents enrolled in the intervention used corporal punishment less and had less supportive attitudes toward corporal punishment. Children achieved statistically significant improvements in cognition. The more children were exposed to Conscious Discipline, the greater the improvement in cognition.
“Too many of the families that we work with tell us that when it comes to parenting they ‘came from nothing and have nothing.’ We aim to change that. Everyone deserves an emotionally healthy starting point for their family. Conscious Discipline offers a toolset that families can grow with.”
