The Incredible Years

The Incredible Years® programme looks at effective techniques for dealing with common childhood behaviour problems in 3-6 year olds.   We explore strategies to manage behaviours such as aggressiveness, tantrums, shouting, answering back and refusing to follow rules are also explored.  Specially trained group leaders work with parents and carers on goals for themselves and their family.

You will

  • meet once a week as a group for two hour sessions
  • watch DVD clips
  • discuss children’s behaviour
  • work out new ways to manage situations at home
  • talk to other adults in the same situation
  • learn ways to stay calm.

Courses lasts for 14 weeks and run during term-times.

Weekly sessions last two hours.  We will offer crèche places and help with transport costs where necessary.  There are up to ten parents and carers in each group.  Each family will receive a copy of the Incredible Years trouble shooting guide and worksheets.
