About the Training
This training will cover in depth the group-based BASIC Parenting programs, which are designed to promote positive parenting strategies and assist parents in managing children’s behavior problems. Three Incredible Years® Programs are covered in the BASIC Training: Toddler Parent Program, Preschool Basic Parent Program, and the early portion of School Age Basic Program. Content includes: child-directed play, narrated commenting, social, emotional and persistence coaching, positive and responsive attention and praise, and predictable routines. Group therapy leadership process issues such as empowering parents, collaborating, dealing with resistance, confronting and teaching, experiential practices, and advocating for parents will be discussed. These intervention programs may be used by professionals (i.e., therapists/parent educators from psychology, social work, education, nursing and psychiatry) as treatment programs for families with young children with conduct problems/ADHD, high risk families, teenage parents, and families referred by child welfare for neglect and abuse. The training also illustrates how to use these programs in a prevention setting for use in preschools/elementary schools.
