Over the past four decades, enormous advances have been made in the field of evidence-based parenting support (EBPS). Despite this progress, to remain relevant to the needs of successive generations of families, it is essential that parenting programs continue to evolve and adapt. This chapter introduces a series of chapters that reflect on what has been accomplished and consider future directions for the field. It is asserted that EBPS has the potential to make a major contribution to the long-term mental and physical health and well-being of children and adults and could also play a role in the resolution of many other problems of global significance. Further innovation in EBPS will occur if the potential of EBPS is recognized, future needs and preferences of families are anticipated, new technologies are embraced, and conditions are created in organizational contexts and research environments that are likely to foster innovation.
