The Incredible Years is based on well-established behavior/social learning principles that describe how behaviors are learned and how they can be changed. This program was developed as a cost-effective prevention method that can be used by families with young children to prevent serious discipline problems.
At the core of this approach is the idea that adults and children can change behavior as a result of regular communication and consistent follow-through. When children are disobedient and families become disrupted, it is sometimes necessary to consider not only the child’s behavior, but also parents’ responses to that behavior.
Group leaders conduct the program with empathy and compassion. Our goal is to provide positive parenting education and support in an effort to help parents (and their families) realize their maximum potential.
