Incredible Years Programme
Problem behaviour in children causes enormous family stress, and parents can feel alone and helpless, but a positive and well balanced family life is possible.
Parent training remains the single most effective way to help young children with challenging behaviour problems.
Incredible Years has been trialed and proven to work with most children in many different cultures and countries, including New Zealand.
The programme helps you develop strategies to build positive relationships with your children and to manage problem behaviours
The programme aims to help you:
