This prevention and intervention program is with the aim to helping parents improve their role as parents for children between the ages of 1-3 years of age to help start a positive journey to the lovely years of parent hood. Its further aim includes the prevention of emotional and social problems in young children through the support of their parents. Parents will have the skills to help their children self-regulate their thoughts, emotions and behaviour, provide a safe and calm environment and teach children about boundaries.
You will learn about attachments, how to manage emotions of your own and your child's, how to care for yourself during these hectic years, child development and what behaviour looks like in these years. How to manage behaviour and how to handle separation and children who misbehave.
There are 12 sessions, two hours each, held in Carlton with a cost of $50 per session per person. Each session will run weekly. 1 hour individual (includes both parents) sessions with a charge of $100 per session (includes both parents) can be held in Niddrie, Hillside and Carlton.
For individual sessions, Josephine can tailor the program to the age/s of your child/ren.
If the sessions are for intervention, not prevention, then longer sessions may be required. Intervention sessions are to give you the skills to help your child manage their inattentive, hyperactive, impulsive or oppositional behaviour. Preventative care means that you will have the skills to prevent these behaviours including underachievement and have more confidence in your parenting skills.
Currently the group program is preventative care.
It is preferred that both parents attend this program.
