The Incredible Years: Parent Education Program

The Incredible Years BASIC Parent Training Program is an evidenced based parenting program that fosters healthy development in young children by strengthening parenting skills and promoting children’s academic, social and emotional skills. This program is a good fit for parents who are struggling with their child’s negative and/or challenging behaviors and wish to learn strategies and skills to promote positive behaviors in their child.

The program is a series of weekly sessions during fourteen consecutive weeks; offered annually February through May. Each session lasts approximately two hours. All adult members of the household with caregiving responsibilities are encouraged to participate. Dinner and child care provided.

Topics included in the Incredible Years Program include:

“I strongly recommend the Incredible Years program to any parent or caregiver who is looking for practical and long-term solutions to the challenging behaviors of young children. The strategies taught really work!”
- Dianne Lee, parent
