Positive Behaviour

The Incredible Years┬« series of programmes are a suite of programmes for parents, teachers and children created by Carolyn Webster-Stratton in the USA. The centre delivers group leader training along with supervision and mentoring for group leaders and teachers delivering the programmes. The Incredible Years┬« series has a strong evidence base demonstrating its effectiveness in delivering effective and sustained change in parent, teacher and child behaviour.
