Article of the Month: Preschool Basic Program RCT
vectorstock_649330 2
The Incredible Years® Preschool Basic Parenting Program for parents of children aged three to six years was recently implemented and evaluated in Birmingham, UK. Researchers sought to test whether the prevention model of the program would improve children’s behavior and social relationships at home and with other children and parenting competence.

Notable results include a reduced intensity of problems in children in the treatment group compared with the control group. There were also significant effects of the intervention on the measure of parenting competence at follow-up.

Delivering the Incredible Years® Parenting Programs In Groups or in Individualized Home Visiting Format
January 23-26

This 4-day training helps nurses, social workers, psychologists, pediatricians and other professionals who provide coaching and guidance on healthy child development to learn how to offer evidence-based Incredible Years  Toddler, Preschool and early School Age Parent Programs in a group or individualized format. 

The group approach helps families build social and support networks as well as learn age-appropriate behavior management strategies. The home visiting IY model helps professionals know how to tailor the program for individual family and child needs and coach parent-child interactions in the home. It allows for involvement of all family members. The group or individual format can be used separately or in combination with each other. 
Visit our Article Library for a chapter describing the IY home coaching model.
These programs have undergone rigorous randomized control group studies and have proven their ability to promote most positive, responsive parenting and to reduce child behavior problems and promote children’s social competence and emotional regulation.
