  • The Incredible Years: Parent Group Leader Training

    • The Incredible Years is an evidence-based intervention program that aims to increase developmentally appropriate positive behaviors while also reducing and managing problematic behaviors in young children. Through group discussion and problem-solving, role plays, and viewing videotaped vignettes, parents learn ways to promote their children's social and emotional development using strategies such as special time, coaching, praise, rewards, and clear and consistent rules and routines. Upon establishing this foundation, parents then learn techniques to more effectively manage negative child behaviors, including ignoring, time-out, and the use of natural and logical consequences.
