Who It's For

The program is for parents and carers looking to enhance their parenting skills. Carers are encouraged to attend together, or individually if separated.

How We Help

Our facilitators support carers with children of any age. We’ll show how respectful interactions can reduce conflict, so families enjoy richer relationships.

What to Expect

Participants consider a range of scenarios they might face with their children. Exercises and discussions support better communication and increased empathy and offer tools to put learning into practice at home.


Six sessions, over six weeks
Two hours per session
