Parenting Skills Groups

The first group is the 'Living with Toddlers Group'. This is a six week programme offered to all families when their child is aged between 18 months and two and a half years. The aim is to work in a preventive way with parents, looking at 'typical' child development and behaviour to foster the development of a positive parent child relationship though the use of encouragement, praise and selective ignoring.
The second group is run with staff at the local 'welfare' centre. This group works with parents who already acknowledge they are leaving difficulties in their relationship with their chid. It focusses on the strategies of positive reinforcement and understanding of children's needs and abilities.
Groups are evaluated using questionnaires and discussion with group members.
Future projects are being planned, which will involve domestic violence and working with young parents.
