About Project

We offer parenting programmes to families looking for help with managing their children's behaviour.

We're here to help you learn how to support your children in all areas of their development.

We have the following parenting programmes available for parents living in Dorset and BCP (Bournemouth, Christchurch & Poole):

  • The Incredible Years Pre-school group programme for parents of children aged 3-6 years (14 weeks)
  • The Incredible Years School Age group programme for parents of children aged 6-12 years (12 weeks)
  • The Incredible Years group programme for parents of children aged 6 to 12 with a diagnosis of ADHD (18 weeks)

The Incredible Years parenting programme was developed by Carolyn Webster-Stratton, a Clinical Psychologist at the University of Washington. It is an evidence based programme and is one of the programmes recommended by CAMHS and Paediatricians within Dorset.

You will explore how to enjoy playing and spending time with your child and discover ways of encouraging positive behaviours.

We will help you find ways of handling misbehaviour in an appropriate and effective way.

In turn, we hope your relationship with your child will improve and they will benefit from greater social skills and a happier, more contented outlook.
