Groups

Below is a list of groups you can request to be run at your school or community group.

Enhancing Emotional Resilience: Emotional resilience is a valuable skill for all children. It is about being in control and believing in one’s ability to work through setbacks and risk situations in a capable, effective manner. This capacity for resilience empowers the child to develop coping behaviours, to persist in the face of failure, to bounce back with confidence and a healthy self-esteem. For 9-11 year olds, the groups consist of 5 x 2 hour sessions.

Raising Tweens and Teens: Positive and Mindful parenting group: is a full day intensive workshop helping parents and caregivers (of children aged 10- 16) develop better relationships, increase good behaviours and manage challenging and risky behaviours. The workshop also focus on equipping parents/carers with mindfulness so that they are better able to cope with multiple demands of parenting tweens and teens. This is an innnovative program increasing parent/caregiver coping skills, confidence and provides practical skills.

Triple P Positive Parenting Program

Karen is an accredited Triple P provider and throughout the year, she runs several Triple P programs across Brisbane and Gold Coast. Triple P is proven to help you raise happy and confident children. The program is based on extensive research that shows the importance of positive, effective parenting. Triple P uses simple strategies and small changes to demonstrate practical, effective ways to manage common behavioural issues faced by many parents, such as:
•    tantrums
•    aggression
•    bedtime and mealtime difficulties
•    disobedience
You’ll learn about:
•    Effective parenting strategies.
•    How to promote your child’s development.
•    How to manage common child behaviour problems.
•    Principles to help you deal with almost any situation that might arise.
This year, Karen will be running one-day intensive Triple P workshops (Level 4) for groups of 6-10 parents. Completing this one day intensive parenting workshop will also help to meet family court requirements.

In exciting news, Karen will also be running Triple P parent catch up groups to support parents who have previously completed a Level 4 Triple P program. This is a great opportunity to meet like-minded parents and tune up those Triple P parenting skills. Karen will also be there to help parents problem solve difficulties they may be having with parenting.

If there are 6+ parents in your organisation interested in a Triple P workshop, please contact info@couragepsyc.com.au to organise a workshop to be conducted in your organisation.

Stepping Stones Triple P groups: Group Stepping Stones introduces parents to positive parenting, and gives you the skills and strategies to promote child development, teach new skills and behaviours, manage misbehaviour, and plan ahead for risky situations. You’ll meet with a group of parents and caregivers for 3 full day workshops (9.30am- 2.30pm). The program also includes some follow-up telephone calls to offer support, feedback, and further help you with your parenting plans and strategies. You will watch segments from the DVD Stepping Stones Triple P: A survival guide for families with a child who has a disability, which will show you how the Triple P strategies work in real life. You will also be given a Stepping Stones Triple P workbook with the tools and information you need to start positive parenting right away at home.

Stepping Stones Triple P seminars: Stepping Stones Triple P seminars are for large groups of parents (of children aged under 12) – possibly 20 or more. It’s an informal presentation, a little like a public forum. There are three seminars in the Stepping Stones Triple P series: (1) Positive Parenting for Children with a Disability; (2) Helping your Child Reach their Potential; and (3) Changing Problem Behaviour into Positive Behaviour. The seminars last around 90 minutes, with time at the end for your questions. It is designed to be a brief introduction to the Stepping Stones Triple P strategies. But you will definitely get some great ideas to take home and try out with your family.
