Parents

Me maumahara ki te aroha ō te whānau

The Incredible Years® is a highly successful parent programme provided to families around New Zealand. This programme involves parents attending fun interactive weekly group sessions. We know parenting can be challenging at times and some support can make a big difference! The sessions are run over 1-2 school terms and involve plenty of time to discuss and practice new ways to manage children’s challenging behaviour, get ideas for growing positive social skills in children, and find ways to enhance relationships in families. 

Weekly sessions provide a great opportunity to build your confidence as a parent and to meet other families who are facing similar challenges. The focus is on children in the 3 – 8 years age range. 

Werry Workforce trains and supports group leaders in providing the programme and we do not provide the programme to parents ourselves. If you’d like to find out more or attend a programme in your area, click here to see a map of organisations delivering the programme and contact them directly. 

For more information about the programme, visit www.incredibleyears.com or Ministry of Education – Special Education. If you have a general enquiry about Werry Workforce please contact coordinator@werrycentre.org.nz.
