Training for working with Parents using the Nurturing Programme
There are several professional training courses for staff in schools who wish to work with parents individually or in groups. Delivering our parenting programmes helps to build relationships with parents, brings a shared language and strategies for managing difficult behaviours, as well as more opportunities to work together to support the development of self-regulation. In turn, this can also support with attendance.
Parent Group Leader Training
This four-day training course equips school staff with everything needed to deliver The Nurturing Programme for parents – including a manual that gives clear and detailed step-by-step guidance for each session in the ten-week programme.
Also included is The Parenting Puzzle, an easy to use guide for parents, and a set of games.
The groups need to be delivered by two trained facilitators.
Parenting Puzzle Workshop
This 1-day training course is for staff who have already trained as Parent Group Leaders and wish to offer a shorter intervention for parents of children under 5. The course provides the knowledge, skill and resources to deliver the four 2-hour workshops.
This 1 or 2-day training course is for practitioners who wish to offer the 4-week Talking Teens programme for parents of teenagers. The groups focus on relationships within the family, communication, negotiating, decision-making and strategies to reduce conflict.
Working One to One with Parents
This 2-day training course promotes a consistent approach to developing family relationships and positive behaviour management strategies. It prepares staff to work effectively with parents using The Nurturing Programme on a one-to-one basis.
