To provide a culturally competent parent training program for Hmong American parents, we sought to identify their cultural preferences and parenting needs, as well as to culturally adapt an evidence-based parent training program—Incredible Years (Webster-Stratton, 2006). Using a community-based participatory research framework, the study consisted of the following four distinctive phases: (a) gather stakeholders and identify the problem through a survey and focus group, (b) obtain qualitative data from Hmong American parents through theater testing and feasibility groups to elicit their feedback on the Incredible Years curriculum, (c) culturally adapt the Incredible Years curriculum based on thematic analysis of the qualitative data, and (d) pilot test the revised parenting curriculum and reflect upon the process of conducting community-based research.
