Thank you for your interest in the National Center on Shaken Baby Syndrome’s (NCSBS) Period of PURPLE Crying program. This letter gives you general information needed to learn more about or implement the PURPLE program.
There are three steps to implementation: 1) register for the free PURPLE program online training; 2) read the Implementation Protocol; and 3) read, sign, and return the Memorandum of Understanding.
Register for the Online Training
The practitioner delivering the program to parents needs to view the Training for Implementation (27-minute) presentation in order to become familiar with the program’s lines of evidence, research and development, and to give them the authority and expertise necessary to deliver the program. There is also a great deal of helpful information and resources on the site that you will find useful in your implementation.
On the Training Registration Page, please fill out the form and make sure to create two different logins with two sets of usernames and passwords: the first is an Organization Login and the second will be your Individual Profile. Make sure to write these down for later use. Your Individual Profile will be your administrative account to access the modules and monitor other users under the organization’s training account. All others who need training will use the Organization Login that you provide them. Afterward, the new user will be prompted to create a private student profile. Each time students login thereafter, they should use their student login information to access the modules.
Within one business day of registering, you will receive an email verifying your access to the PURPLE program online training as well as instructions for logging in. You will have access for two weeks to view the online version of the PURPLE program DVD and booklet and the training that comes with the program. Should you decide to implement the program, your access will be ongoing.
