Incredible Years Parenting Group

Are you finding parenting challenging at the moment? Do you feel like you don’t have any control over your child’s behaviour? Would you like to learn new strategies to improve your relationship with your child and effective ways to promote positive behaviour?

 

The Incredible Years programme is an evidenced-based programme to

  • Improve relationships between children and their parents/carers
  • Promote children’s social and emotional development
  • Prevent and/or treat behaviour and emotional problems in young children

 

If you attend this group you will identify and work towards your own goals for change.  The group leaders will work with you to introduce a variety of strategies to help you build a positive relationship with your child, reducing negative behaviours and promoting positive behaviour.

 

The programme will run for 14 weeks, is 2 hours per week, term time only. Due to the ongoing COVID situation, the groups will run remotely via Teams so you must have access to IT equipment with picture and sound.

 

The groups will be led by Trainee Parent Therapists.  These therapists have extensive experience supporting children, young people and families and are undertaking training at post-graduate levels so will be closely supervised.  Due to this, the therapists are required to record the sessions to support their own professional development. If you are not happy with this, then we cannot offer you a place in the group. However, the therapist will discuss this fully with you and answer any questions you may have.

 

This group is for parents who need some advice and support because they feel their child’s behaviour is becoming increasingly difficult or challenging. Unfortunately, this group is not suitable for families who are already working with other statutory services due to concerns around their child or other risk factors (services such as CAMHS and children’s social care).

 

We anticipate that demand will be high for this course and therefore we cannot guarantee everyone a place on this programme.  On receipt of your referral, you will go on a waiting list and a Trainee Parent Therapist will contact you in the coming weeks to complete an assessment with you to ensure suitability for the programme.

 

Other parents who have attended this course have said:

“The intervention has helped with my self-confidence and given me new skills to use. Home life is definitely calmer and happier.”

 

“The group leaders and other parents were very supportive. I feel a lot more confident in my parenting and look forward to the summer holidays instead of dreading it!”

 

“I found the leaders extremely helpful and supportive. I really looked forward to seeing everyone each week. I always felt listened to and came away feeling empowered to be able to make positive changes.”
