Incredible Years Parent Programme

WMS Senco —

will be run during the second half of this year.

Incredible Years Parent is a 14-session programme for parents of children aged 3–8, which provides parents with skills to better manage children with behavioural problems, creating a home environment that is conducive to positive social and educational outcomes.

The programme is delivered by Ministry of Education, Special Education staff and by non-government organisations (NGOs). Many of these NGOs also provide a range of social services to families funded through the ministries of Health or Social Development or other agencies. 

The Ministry of Social Development ran a pilot study to evaluate the programme and the results showed sustained improvement in both the parenting practices and the children’s behaviour.

If you are interested in participating in this programme please email annamowat@xtra.co.nz.
