ALCALAY, Lidia; MILICIC, Neva  and  TORRETTI, Alejandra. Effective Family-School Alliance: An Audiovisual Program for Parents. Psykhe [online]. 2005, vol.14, n.2, pp.149-161. ISSN 0718-2228.

The purpose of this article is to identify and describe some of the variables that are considered as essential in order to promote an effective alliance between family and school. These variables were considered in the development of an educational program that includes a video and a set of activities designed to be used with parents in the school context. The different contents of the program were elaborated in such a way so as to expand parents' perspective with respect to their rol in their children's education, as well as to question and enrich their integration to the school system. Within this context, the educational program is oriented to increase parental competences so as to establish a more effective alliance with the school system which in turn, will have a positive effect in social, emotional and cognitive development of the child.

Keywords : family; school; parents; audiovisual program; family-school relationship.
