Mental health problems are a major issue in Australia and research has shown that emotional and behavioural risk factors for this issue develop during childhood. This program is designed to target these behaviours at a young age to lower the risk of mental health issues at a later stage in the child’s life.
The program will provide parents and caregivers knowledge to increase their emotion-coaching and decrease their emotion dismissing parenting behaviour. The program also helps to improve the regulation of the parents' or carers' own emotions to develop more functional attitudes to raising a child.
We have found this program to work really well with the children and have seen family conflicts resolved and children successfully develop frustration tolerance and overall improvements on behaviour.
