Promoting Positive Parenting Level 3: Positive Parenting Techniques in Practice
Date & Time:
Pre-requisite: Participants must have completed Positive Parenting Level 1 & 2 training
This is a theory-to-action workshop to look at how we can keep these tools alive in our work with families.
Just as families need to practice to apply positive parenting techniques with their children, so do workers need practice to apply these with parents, otherwise the tools can become stale, or we may give up when we meet families who show resistance or have other difficulties in applying these ideas.
After a refresher of the tools and techniques from the Parenting Pyramid, the workshop will involve case presentations from members of the group.
Ideas taught come from social learning theory, systemic family therapy and non-violent resistance therapy
Target Group: Groups 3 – 5 This one day advanced workshop is only for practitioners who have completed levels 1 and 2 of Promoting Positive Parenting.
Aims & Objectives:
Group members will be asked to bring an anonymised case for discussion including a basic genogram / family tree.
We will look at
- What tools are working with this family and consider tools that may not be working and why
- Cases going well and stuck cases
Cases can be brought from individual work with families or as part of a parenting group.
The aim of the workshop is to pool ideas and troubleshoot difficult issues. And remind ourselves of useful tools that we may not be using.
To maximise small group discussion, there will be 10-12 places available for this workshop.
After this workshop, it may be the possible to join a case discussion group (one a term) to support these ideas, and continue to practice these ideas, over time.
Promoting Positive Parenting Level 1, 2 & 3 is a series of learning events which aims to introduce or refresh ideas for workers in order to support parents / carers to support their children to learn to behave in cooperative ways.
