Werry Workforce Whāraurau is delighted to host a three-day Basic Training workshop for delivery of The Incredible Years® Parenting Programme. This workshop is intended for professionals who are working with families with children aged three to eight-years (including those with significant behavioural difficulties) and who wish to deliver The Incredible Years® Parenting Programme.

Who Should Attend:

This training is for clinicians/therapists with a background in social work, psychology, counselling, nursing, teaching, occupational therapy, family therapy, or child and adolescent psychiatry. A good understanding of parenting, child development, and knowledge of group work processes will maximise this training experience.

This is an intensive, practical training workshop over three full days. A “Completion of training” certificate requires that the full three days are attended.

There is an expectation that those who attend this training continue to work towards accreditation in the programme. Information regarding accreditation is provided at the workshop.

Commitment required from practitioner:

  • Attend all three days – if you are unable to attend the full three days, please do not register
  • Manager’s support for the full three days’ training attendance, and attendance at subsequent Consultation Days and Fidelity Workshops
  • Ongoing co-delivery of the IY Parent Program with another IY-trained practitioner from your organisation

Training enables Group Leaders to deliver:

  • The Incredible Years® Pre-School Programme (3 - 6 years)
  • Note: An additional Update Day is required to deliver the School Age Programme (specifically focused for the older age group, 9 - 12 years) and the Baby Programme (0 - 12 months). This three-day training is a prerequisite for attending all Update Days.
