International Congress on Evidence-based Parenting Support

Online: 4-7 June 2025

We are thrilled to announce the return of I-CEPS in 2025! Following the resounding success of I-CEPS 2023, we are eagerly anticipating further growth and innovation in our upcoming event.

Our Congress aims to inspire global collective action to enhance access for all parents to high-quality, evidence-based, and culturally appropriate parenting support. I-CEPS has emerged as a significant global initiative, championed by leading universities, organisations, and state governments. With an ambitious agenda, our aim is to improve the quality of life for millions of children and families worldwide.

What's new at I-CEPS 2025?


Design your own schedule

The theme of the 2025 I-CEPS is “Parenting support: A common pathway to improving diverse outcomes for children and young people.” In line with this theme, the Congress aims to bring together a mix of perspectives to effectively address the varied issues related to parenting support. Proposed topics include the role of parenting in mental health, education, economics, youth crime, sustainability, and more!

The main program will run continuously across three 24-hour days (4-6 June 2025). With access to a range of live and recorded presentations, you can design your schedule to fit within an average working day, or block out some time to network with international attendees and presenters.

Improved navigation options and key word searching will make it easier to identify the presentations most relevant to your interests.

Parent Day

We are proud to introduce 'Parent Day,' an event co-designed with parent organisations to facilitate meaningful dialogue and collaboration between parents and professionals. Parent Day will be held on the Congress's fourth day (7 June, 2025). Planned activities include topic-specific parent seminars, skill-building workshops, Q&A sessions with program leaders, and inspirational guest speakers.

Networking opportunities

The program will have dedicated time for live Q&A's, interactive workshops, and Action Circles allowing direct contact with international leaders and presenters in the field of parenting support.

We are also introducing a matchmaking feature to facilitate interactions between participants with similar interests.

Proposed benefits of I-CEPS 2025

Global mission

Ongoing social impact

Be a part of the global community. The I-CEPS brings together professionals in all fields of parenting support from around the world. Meet and learn from parenting researchers, practitioners, policy makers, etc., and contribute to a global effort to improve access for all families to effective parenting support.

Take learnings and commitments from the Congress and translate them into local learning collaboratives and research projects. Action Circles will be a crucial first step in developing the networks required to collectively advocate for policy change and improved parenting services.

Diverse representation

Global representation of disciplines, ethnicities, geographic regions, and resource settings is central to the makeup of the Congress committee membership, program content, and post-congress activities.

World-leading presenters

Hear from and connect with world leading experts in your field.

I-CEPS invites a mix of well-known and promising researchers, program developers, master clinicians, policy makers, consumers, and service providers.
