Incredible Years - School Age Programme

Logo

The Incredible Years programme supports parents to develop confidence in being a parent. The group provides the opportunity to meet other parents whilst learning positive parenting strategies to increase the child’s self-esteem and reduce aggressive behaviour problems. Parents will develop an understanding of the different child developmental stages and how to manage misbehaviour as a child develops - to promote academic success in later life and build effective social relationships.

This programme is for parents who want to strengthen their relationship with their child and get the best behaviour out of their children. Parents receive a weekly call by the facilitator to help put ideas into practice at home.

Delivery includes group discussions, group activities, use of video clips and ‘have a go’ tasks to try at home.

  • Length of Programme: 13 weeks. Each session is 2 ½ hours.
  • Refreshments and Crèche are provided.
