Spotlight: Incredible Beginnings

Our incredible Mentor, Jane Davidson, has just completed her second Incredible Beginnings® Program course for Dorset County Council, and has shared her exciting experiences and great results with us. Jane supports early years providers, including offering refresher sessions for graduates, and finding ways to network new Incredible Beginnings course attendees with graduates to see the ways they are implementing IB strategies in their classrooms.

Inc Beg 2 2Interested in the Incredible Beginnings program? We are holding an Incredible Beginnings training in Seattle this June, led by Program Developer Dr. Carolyn Webster-Stratton! The workshop will train group leaders to deliver the Incredible Beginnings Program to teachers and child care providers and includes a training protocol for teachers of toddlers (1–3 years) as well as one for preschoolers (3–5 years).

In this collaborative, interactive training, participants learn group leadership skills such as use of self-reflection inventories and goal setting, mediation of video vignettes, how to set up role play practices and buzzes, development of behavior plans, and benefits/barriers exercises. Topics include separation anxiety, social, emotional and academic coaching, nurturing child-directed play interactions, narrative descriptive commenting, and proactive teaching with predictable routines and consistent positive behavior management strategies. All of these approaches rely on building positive relationships and attachment with children using sensitive and responsive approaches.
