  • Fridays 12 August - 25 November from 9.00 am to 12.30 pm, no cost and transport and childcare remuneration available.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                       The Incredible Years Programme is an evidence based programme for parents of children aged 3-8 years who have challenging behaviour.  There is a focus on social emotional competence and the parent-child relationship.  This is a 14 week programme led by trained facilitators.  The programme takes a break during the school holidays.
The majority of parents who have completed this course have found it really beneficial and supportive; and we see some marked changes in parenting practice, parent child relationships and the intensity and frequency of challenging behaviour post programme.
