Theoretical Framework of the PFL Programme

The PFL Programme Manual outlines a logic model and theory of change which are grounded in several psychological theories of development. Specifically, the programme is supported by the theory of human attachment (Bowlby, 1969), socio-ecological theory of development (Bronfenbrenner, 1986), and social learning theory (Bandura, 1977). Collectively, these theories suggest that a model of providing support to parents will improve parent and child outcomes while empowering families and local communities.
