The Incredible Years
The Incredible Years® evidence based parenting programs focus on strengthening parenting competencies and fostering parent involvement in children’s school experiences, to promote children’s academic, social and emotional skills and reduce behaviour issues.
The Parent groups are delivered in 12-20 weekly group sessions of 2-3 hours
(specific length varies depending on which parent program is being implemented).
Group sessions focus on: strengthening parent-child interactions, nurturing relationships, reducing harsh discipline, and fostering parents’ ability to promote children’s social, emotional, and language development.
Preschool and School Age Parent groups encourage parents as they learn to promote school readiness skills.
Parents are encouraged to be involved in children’s school experiences to promote children’s academic and social skills, emotional self-regulation, and to reduce conduct problems.
There are also parent program protocols for use as a prevention program or as a treatment for children with conduct problems and/or ADHD.
